    I have been learning the land by assisting Sonni Greene in surveying the dips, bumps, grooves, swirls and curves of the 115 acres under the care of the ashram. Elevation points have been charted by inserting metal pegs and wooden stakes, marked with neon ribbons tied to trees, and recorded by way of an instrument and prism that render topographic maps.

  5. Beyond Branches

    a yogic perspective on pruning

    November 10, 2010 by Ashley, Category: Reflection & Articles

    I spent a large portion of the summer and fall pruning fruit trees: lopping, reducing, cleaning up, both literally and metaphorically. And in doing so, I found fruit I didn’t even know was there.
