Life in the Ashram - an interview with Raj

ashram life inspirations karma yoga video shorts
 

By Narada

In August 2020, at the start of the Governments strategy of Lockdowns, I interviewed Raj Soni. Raj was a resident of the Ashram at that time; we sat and talked in the late summer sun; trying to re-assure the people who couldn't come and visit that in fact we were 'holding the space' for their return. We began the interview surrounded by the beautiful orange lilies down by the pond, then the heat suggested we move under the shade of the venerable Oak who has watched our remarkable Ashram grow from Swami Nishchalananda's dream and a few old farm buildings into what it is today... a Yoga, Tantra, Advaita centre to inspire, cajole, entice one to go deeper in the practice of unfolding ones birthright, one's full potential.

Please enjoy the movie.
