  2. The Heart of the Matter

    “What is your heart’s desire?” Swami Radhananda asks me in her light lilting voice that penetrates the veils of my emotions. It was the spring of 2007 and I had been experiencing depression. Out of nowhere, out of the ethos, out of the centre of my being comes “travel!” I hear myself say this wondering, “Where did that come from?” It was a very simple yet profound question, which set me on a journey that would span the next 2 years – it takes time for a seed to germinate fully into its bloom.

  3. Bridging Heights

    One of the attractive qualities of Yasodhara Heights is that it offers its residents a chance to live independently while still remaining very close to and involved in the Ashram community in a retreat-like setting. Paris Marshall Smith, a prospective occupant, and Rebecca Dale, a current resident, discuss what it means for them, especially as young women, to explore bridging their dedication to spiritual living with their worldly desires.

  4. Eileen Reviews: Carried by a Promise

    We are all leaders of our own lives, and the lessons Swami Radhananda has shared inspire me – to trust my intuition to guide myself with strength where I need to go.

    Carried by a Promise, Swami Radhananda’s new spiritual memoir, begins with her first exposure to the Divine Light Invocation in spring, 1977. As she stands in a circle in the dark, dingy church basement in Lethbridge, Alberta, she sees streaming droplets of light… shining bits like heaven’s rain. This first scene in her ambitious and far-reaching account of spiritual life demonstrates Radhananda’s natural receptivity and visual imagination, both of which guide and instruct her throughout her transformation from Mary Ann McDougall, mother and educator, to Radhananda, president of the Yasodhara Ashram in Kootenay Bay, B.C.

    Yasodhara Heights was developed with the Ashram Society members in mind. It offers the opportunity to live away from the core of Ashram daily activity in a retreat-like environment, but also to be close to and engaged in the community and to live in homes that support our commitment to environmental responsibility.
