When I landed in Alberta after a backpacking trip, I was completely seduced by the rocky mountains and the vibe of western Canada. People were kind, relaxed and connected to the pristine nature at our doorstep.
I was sharing a basement with a man that I did not know; he was a strong meditator. We developed a friendship and what he was telling me about meditation, studying with masters and community living was really resonating for me. I decided that I wanted to experience giving my services to a conscious community without receiving a paycheck back, just food and shelter.
When I saw Clear Sky Center and the Karma Yoga Program on a woofing website, I knew that was my next step :)
