April 2009

This is a beautiful quote from an amazing children’s book that holds wisdom for all ages: “Old Turtle, Questions of the Heart”.

“The flowers of this field fulfill their lives in the abundance of their beauty.
It is the pleasure of the flowers to give more than simple need requires.
They adorn the earth and perfume the air,
and they clearly say without the gift of speech that life is good and sweet,
and though sometimes tangled in thorns, it is crowned with loveliness.”

May you enjoy the flowers of spring this month!

Service Opportunity
Mata Shakti Ashram welcomes your support! How can you help?
Time and Talent: help with yard and garden maintenance, upkeep of classroom and workshop/training spaces, vegetarian raw food prep, help with social media and technology. Talk to your friends and personal community about Mata Shakti Ashram, for we are truly “grass roots”!

Finance/Funds: Donations of money to assist Mata Shakti Ashram pay the overhead cost for the current space, pay guest teachers, and provide some scholarships to those in need. Let us know how much you are willing to pledge monthly or yearly over the next year to 5 years, as we prepare the non-profit status. Every donation will receive a class pass to share with a friend to acquaint them with the ashram.
