    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.

    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.

    because the world needs to know

    As of today, September 10th, the year has brought many challenges and setbacks in terms of the current climate crisis. The negotiations in Copenhagen didn’t bring any significant commitments from world leaders and millions of barrels of oil continue to devastate wildlife habitats along the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic coast. Arctic sea ice is melting at a record pace and landslides are washing away mountainsides in Central America.

    “If we plan and act early enough, and use our creativity and cooperation to unleash the genius within our local communities, then we can build a future that could be far more.”Rob Hopkins

    As mentioned in my last entry, in addition to my work with the ashram’s food flow, I am completing my final project for my master’s in community and regional planning, looking specifically at planning for post-carbon food systems. (more…)

    Yasodhara Ashram has a goal of being carbon neutral by 2013 and this has made me reflect on sustainability.  I’m starting to feel that daily stability and long-term sustainability are deeply intertwined. I see the ashram as an excellent example of a socially sustainable community.
