Being a full-season resident at the Centre has been a unique and precious opportunity to practice selfless service and contribute to learning and sharing in spiritual community. It is a life gift for which I am deeply grateful to Baba Hari Dass and his teachings, and everyone who participates in this sacred practice. Much love.”
