  1. Revolution of the Seed

    sarada's passage to navdanya part III

    June 26, 2010 by saradagrace, Category: Reflection & Articles

    The last few days have been a whirlwind of sights and colors. Settling into Navdanya has been like a dream: misty mornings followed by scorching afternoons, followed by star filled evenings, one after the other. The sounds of Hindi are becoming more familiar to my ears and I have learned the names of most of the community members here.


  2. Living Service

    bridging the local and global community

    June 24, 2010 by Andrew Baerthel, Category: Audio & Video

    Integration. It’s been a consistent theme for both myself and our blog, Lightwaves. Almost 3 months after taking the Yoga Development Course and Hatha Teacher Certification I have begun to ask myself questions like, “how do I bring my practice into the world?” and “what does it mean to live spiritually?” In August, I will be leaving Yasodhara Ashram after close to two years of residence here.

    November 23, 2010 by Sarah Keenan, Category: Reflection & Articles

    A vision for the Comprehensive Land Management Project is seeing our natural surroundings as a tool for experiential education. Sarah Keenan, a regional coordinator for Katimavik, has been bringing youth to Yasodhara Ashram over the last year to experience karma yoga and hands-on learning.


  5. Meeting Dr. Vandana Shiva

    sarada's passage to navdanya part IV

    July 27, 2010 by saradagrace, Category: Reflection & Articles

    This summer, Lightwaves is posting a monthly theme week on sustainability, featuring the reflections of inspired yogis who are integrating spiritual practice and critical thought into their work at a global and or local sphere.

    We begin this second thematic week with Sarada Eastham, a Canadian intern in India, devoted to international development and drawing awareness to social, environmental, and agricultural injustice. (more…)
