Two months after joining the Ashram Internship program, Natalie Wall readily lists the advantages she’s discovered to living in spiritual community.
I’m the happiest I’ve been in a long time. I’ve found my centre and grounded myself. I’m in a balanced place because the Ashram likes to keep things in balance and takes care of everything. All I have to do is show up and do my best.
Being part of a group of interns is great. We are all different and balance each other out. We learn to communicate even when we disagree. The people here allow me to be who I am.
I’m feeling the physical benefit of Hatha Yoga each morning. My spine is straighter; my posture has improved. And the weekly workshops, such as Dreams and Mantra, that are part of the internship, are amazing. I’m precise and concise now in my reflections.
I’m glad to be staying for six to eight months with my garden internship. I know it will be transforming. Everything is so practical and grounding. I’m more present in life than ever before.
(We currently have internship openings in Hospitality, Food Systems and Preserving Kitchen.)
