Relating, Creating, Transforming

Monday

In the morning we began our first service-learning project in West Philly at Ahimsa House.

The Ahimsa House is a center for practices of peace & mindful living and a center for conscious consumerism. Their pillars [in Sanskrit] are:

Ahimsa (non-violence)

Metta (unconditional love), and mindfulness.

The residents of Ahimsa House really take simple living seriously! Check out the amazing house where one of the residents who worked with us currently lives…

And a glimpse inside the main House…

But enough perusing…let’s get to work! And WORK they did…

But compost? Well…

Stay tuned for the next post: our visit to the Mormon Temple in Center City Philadelphia.
