To walk in sacred space

 The summer has just arrived in the Northwest and its almost time for us to return back to school.

At the beginning of each new year, I like to set up time to bond and play with my new students during the summer. This week was our second chance to enjoy our new friends and families. In gratitude the sun has been shining all week. The Ananda Community has five expansive acres to explore. The children just bath in the peaceful beauty and the serene sacred landscape. I often hear tears from the children when their parents have to put them in the car to drive home. 
Young children love animals

Isn't that what I eat in Chinese food?

How do green beans grow?

 Where do carrots come from?

There are many paths to explore

How did all these rocks get here? This is our heart path. Sacred hearts are all through these rocks.    
Look, I found one!    
 A wise saint said: "Environment is stronger than will." Children can feel the power of a sacred space. I  have the wonderful opportunity to facilitate this at the our Living Wisdom School. What a journey we are about to embark on together as we prepare for a new school year.
"Where Ganges, woods, Himalayan caves and men dream God.
I am hallowed; my body touched that sod!"

  1. Thank you, Chandi! My teachers will love this. Priti

  2. 5 acres Chandi - how very blessed you all are. And I'm very jealous of your labrynth! What wonderful opportunities you are giving the children to form bonds with nature, and to feel the peace and beauty that being outside brings.

  3. Oh I can see why they love it. I'm loving it from where I sit:)
