The gardens at the Ashram have a reputation! Summer guests and day visitors often express their appreciation for the beauty and serenity of our grounds. Scattered throughout the property, these tended gardens offer spaces for reflection and deep connection to the gifts of nature.
For our 50th celebration, we have created a special place of beauty – a lavender field right in the heart of the Ashram. Swami Radha encouraged us to refine our senses, and this new garden will offer opportunities to see a variety of colours, smell the scents, hear the bees gathering nectar, be touched by the generosity of the plants, and taste the flowers in our teas. And you will be able to take some of this garden home with you in lavender-scented sachets, eye pillows, dried bouquets, Ashram teas and bath salts, which are available in our gift shop and online.
A special place to stop and pause as you head down to the beach or return to your room from karma yoga in the garden.
Special thanks for the generous support from the 2013 Yoga Development Course participants and other lavender donors.
