Eat Strawberries and Explore Sacred Space

For Immediate Release
Monday, June 12, 2017

Yasodhara Ashram’s 22nd annual Strawberry Social on Saturday, June 24 from 1- 4 pm is a delicious opportunity to indulge in fresh Creston strawberries and cream, and to gather with friends and associates. Yasodhara – Canada’s first ashram – is also building an extraordinary new Temple of Light, with construction completion and an official opening scheduled for August 5.

“Along with the strawberries, we are inviting everyone to a sneak preview of the temple, with tours ongoing throughout the afternoon,” says Ashram president Swami Lalitananda. “This temple has an innovative and organic design, as well as a beautiful purpose – to create a space of hope, peace and understanding.”

While you are at the Ashram, explore the grounds and extensive gardens. Shop at the annual used book sale, with proceeds donated to the Crawford Bay School’s hot lunch program. Special activities are planned for children, too!

All are welcome. No need to RSVP.

Yasodhara Ashram is located at 527 Walkers Landing Road, five minutes from the Kootenay Bay ferry landing.

Thanks to the support of Columbia Basin Trust.
