    January 11, 2010 by Andrew Baerthel, Category: Audio & Video

    Swami RadhanandaWe at Yasodhara Ashram are shifting our focus to the 41st Yoga Development Course, welcoming and supporting 30 participants. In this Satsang talk, Swami Radhananda speaks about the beginning of the YDC and about expanding our awareness of who we are, realizing our potential. “If you don’t examine your life, then it’s not fully lived. You’re entering into yourself, that’s always exciting and challenging.”

    Peaceful-landscapeAlanda Greene writes about the sweet offerings of taking time off from our busy lives and spending time going within.  This time can be for anyone, especially for those with families. The community of Crawford Bay has recently constructed a new Leeds Gold Standard public school which offers children an inspiring space to learn in.  Think about it, stepping out of the fast pace of daily life, slowing down to listen to the wisdom that awaits within and knowing that your family can be there with you.

  4. A Mother and Daughter: Two lives in the Light

    September 12, 2009 by Lightwaves, Category: Reflection & Articles


    Sondra Marshall recently spent time at Yasodhara Ashram to reconnect and celebrate her daughter Paris’ 32nd birthday.  Sondra has a long-time connection with Swami Radha’s teachings.  In 1969 she discovered one of Canada’s first Radha Centres in Ottawa where she took classes with Nancy Mulitz.  Swami Radha visited the Centre and offered a workshop where Sondra got her “first glimmer of what yoga was about.” No sooner she was living back on the coast, where she made a connection with the Ashram, and answering a spiritual longing within, she started to take courses and then the YTC in 1975.  It was transformative experience for her.
