Yasodhara Ashram was born out of love, faith and commitment and these qualities continue to infuse it. When we keep the connection to the Light, we trust that That power will sustain the teachings into the future. Of course the power also includes our collective intelligence, intuition, imagination and hard work as we explore options and observe—as Swami Radha advised—which doors open.
In this newsletter you will find highlights from our succession/strategic planning meetings. Other articles give indications that some doors are already opening as we hear from a younger generation woman stepping into her power, from social change agents appreciating the Ashram as a model and from a collaborative network director finding renewal in our professional retreat program.
Enjoy your summer and please join us when you can. It’s a full and fruitful season here, and our doors are always open to you.
