Each time I go to the Ashram I come away feeling rejuvenated, full of Light and ready to enter my life at home with new understanding of myself. The days at the Ashram are filled with yogic practices, starting with Hatha Yoga in the morning, courses or Karma Yoga throughout the day and ending with Satsang in the Temple of Light. All these practices are done with reflection, with space given to understand how I act and interact in the world. I find new depths of my Light within. I feel so nourished on every level. The meals are excellent, the rooms are clean and comfortable and the grounds set in the mountains on the lake are so well cared for. When sitting in the Temple of Light I can feel how sacred this space is.

A place of acceptance and warm invitation. A place I go to re-realize self-realization. People of many spiritual backgrounds are welcomed in the temple of the light. Courses are brought about to invite us to be in authentic ways. Meals ate in silence, and delicious/organic/buffet. Being from Alberta I feel lucky to have a spiritual home and community so close that calls and challenges me to live most high.

Magic happens here at the ashram, this place so filled with light you literally feel it as you enter the property. There are many options of how to use your time here- taking classes to allow you to explore the meaning of your life; doing karma yoga to contribute to the daily flow of activities or simply retreat and do your own thing. This is a place to return to again and again!
