Source Temple Sanctuary

Source Temple Sanctuary is a bright gathering of those who have let go of the limitations of the common paths of the world and are practicing an alternative. It is a context leading to the excellence that comes only from the certainty of Reality Itself as our only Source and it manifests in the form of true relationships based on that certainty. Through a consistent demonstration of “Cooperation + Tolerance = Peace” we go beyond the self imposed limitations of our minds to re-establish a bright model of society where each and everyone’s way of being is a whole expression of their undeniable greatness. Volunteers coming to Source Temple would be entering as Karma Yogis through the Karma Yoga Program. Karma Yoga is the practice of selfless service, dedicating yourself to serve others. When you take away thoughts of yourself and attachment to the result and your ‘pay’ for performing the task, your real reward is given you; your spiritual path opens up. Carrying out a task where the focus is on being present in each moment, unconcerned about your own and others’ judgments of you and the task you have performed, using the task to express your love; in this you are blessed by naturally occurring healing. Our Karma Yoga program is the perfect experience for you if… You are feeling drawn to serve, to actively express love, to put your heart and soul into a task and feel genuine appreciation. You relish community living; building relationships with people searching for and practicing a different way of living. You have a feeling there is another way to be and you want to learn this by witnessing it, immersing yourself in it and practicing self-less service. We offer various programs in which you can practice karma yoga. The exact task depends on the needs that arise but we always find that the task you are given each day provides you with exactly what you need at that time. Karma yoga here at Source Temple includes tending to the vegetable garden, painting, cleaning, food preparation, cooking, harvesting vegetables, carpentry, tending to our other gardens and outside areas, building, homecare and maintenance: - Young Adults Karma Yoga If you are 35 or younger, we offer two week karma yoga programs with no financial cost.

Being at Source Temple was an unforgettable experience. I have no words to describe how inspiring it was to be in this place and to experience a different way of living. It is living proof that man can build wonderful things when there is unity, collaboration, and love. I met people from all over the world, both locals and volunteers, and made great friends that I want to take forever. During the weeks I've been there I actually lived in a large family in a beautiful place, surrounded by nature, waterfalls and beautiful scenery.
