Special April Programs at Desert Ashram
Mar 28, 2012 03:42PM
Wildflowers are blooming at Desert Ashram, a small monastic community on Tucson’s west side, established in the 1970s. Volunteer opportunities exist at the ashram yearround, but special ones are planned for the month of April.
Lots of trees and desert plants thrive on the beautiful grounds, but along with the abundant wildflowers in this season come the weeds. The ashram is inviting volunteers to call and sign up for any Saturday in April to help with grounds care, enjoy a hearty vegetarian lunch and in the afternoon, join in watching a video of The Ramayana, episodes from the famous series based upon the life of the Indian Avatar Sri Rama.
Visitors are welcome at the ashram—just call ahead to let them know when you’ll be coming. Daily and weekly wisdom teachings, worship and meditation are open to all, and there is a weekly hatha yoga class for women.
