The Road to Yogaville...
As part of my summer vacation, I spent some time with my sister in Yogaville, a retreat center in Buckingham, Virginia, the birthplace of Integral Yoga.
Yogaville exceeded my expectations for its sheer architectural beauty, interfaith awareness, great yoga classes and lectures, gourmet vegetarian and vegan meals prepared with organic produce picked daily from their own farmland, plus a multitude of blessings. I can highly recommend this place for anyone seeking to get away for a few days (or weeks) to rejuvenate.
As many of us visitors on the "Welcome Weekend" noted, it's a lot closer than India, and one can reap similar spiritual rewards here.
By the time one leaves Yogaville, a deeper sense of Oneness is felt. We were touched, moved and inspired by the monks, residents and fellow travelers. We came to understand more powerfully the founder Sri Swami Satchidinanda's motto, "Truth is One, Paths are Many."
This summer, I'm offering a four week program for people who want to work on healing their clutter or hoarding tendency. This group requires a minimum of six and maximum of 10 participants, registered by July 26. If you're interested, read more and register here.
