Hello, Namaste :-)
We are Bharati with daughter Ananda, seven years old and our son Gabriel, four years old. Together with Sabine, our cats Shakti and Krishna-Anton we are living here in a great large Seminar house. Most of the time we host guests and Seminars/Retreats at our Seminar Center in our Ashram.
Nature is amazing here, we are in the middle of the Black Forest on a hillside, we have our own spring water and a big garden. It is a great project as we also work with Permakultur.
Join our team :) !!!
We are a spiritual and mostly vegan-raw food family with lots of ideas and mostly lots of tasks :-)
Seva - Karma Yoga
When you join us as a “working guest” in the Ashram you will be a part of the Energy we all creating together.
So that we all experience a positive energy and experience in the Ashram and also spiritual experiences are possible, it is important that we keep the necessary "energy field" and activate it positively. In addition to practicing silence and meditating, this includes reading spiritual books and karma yoga.
Karma Yoga also called Seva is an important spiritual exercise in all ashrams.
The normal duration of seva in an ashram is 2 to 4 hours a day and is, of course, independent of working hours or "working guest" time.
Here at the Ashram, there is no Seva compulsion. The recommendation is to practice at least one hour of Seva / Karma Yoga a day. To get you're personal Seva Task you talk please to Bharati or Sabine when you arrive in the Ashram.
WE ALSO HAVE A HOUSE IN TIRUVANNAMALAI, INDIA
We travel to India 2-3 times each year to lead divine Power journey. It is possible to join us as a workaway as a really caring Babysitter. If you are interested, it is important that you come to be with us first in our Ashram in Sasbachwalden, Germany, to make sure we all fit together, and with the children, of course.
But, you can always write to us for more Information!
