Karma Yoga Experience in Source Temple Sanctuary
Source Temple Sanctuary is a cooperative community located in the countryside of Cunha, Sao Paulo State, Brazil. Our model of living is founded upon Active Service to others.
We are currently looking for skilled volunteers
- mechanic or any other handy work might be very useful also
to help us with some projects going on in our community and be part of our model of living.
We currently welcome skilled volunteers for long periods from 1 to 3 months.
Who are we?
Source Temple Sanctuary is a bright gathering of those who have let go of the limitations of the common paths of the world and are practising an alternative. It is a context leading to the excellence that comes only from the certainty of Reality Itself as our only Source and it manifests in the form of true relationships based on that certainty.
Through a consistent demonstration of “Cooperation + Tolerance = Peace,” we go beyond the self-imposed limitations of our minds to re-establish a bright model of society where each and everyone’s way of being is a whole expression of their undeniable greatness.
Our Karma Yoga program is the perfect experience for you if you are feeling drawn to serve and to actively express love. The Source Temple Sanctuary experience offers you a glimpse into a harmonious community living while building relationships with people searching for and practising a different way of living.
What is the Karma Yoga program?
Volunteers coming to Source Temple would be entering as Karma Yogis through the Karma Yoga Program.
Karma yoga is the practice of selfless service, dedicating yourself to serve others. When you take away thoughts of yourself and attachment to the result and you ‘pay’ for performing the task, your real reward is given to you; your spiritual path opens up. Carrying out a task where the focus is on being present in each moment, unconcerned about your own and others’ judgments of you and the task you have performed, using the task to express your love; in this, you are blessed by naturally occurring healing.
Our Karma Yoga program is the perfect experience for you if you…
- …are feeling drawn to serve, to actively express love, to put your heart and soul into a task and feel genuine appreciation.
- …relish community living; building relationships with people searching for and practising a different way of living.
- …have a feeling there is another way to be and you want to learn this by witnessing it, immersing yourself in it and practising selfless service.
How you can participate in our Karma Yoga program
We offer various programs in which you can practice karma yoga. The exact task depends on the needs that arise but we always find that the task you are given each day provides you with exactly what you need at that time. Karma yoga here at Source Temple includes tending to the vegetable garden, painting, cleaning, food preparation, cooking, harvesting vegetables, carpentry, tending to our other gardens and outside areas, building, homecare and maintenance.
