May the merits from your act of generosity become the cause for the golden age of peace and harmony to arise.
Give Your skills, love and Time
One of the best ways to learn how to practice in your life is to offer your skills or time. You can volunteer by offering your service to benefit all sentient beings.

This is a space for people to authentically connect and be present in the world while living with greater vitality, love and purpose. The center will offer a holistic program of Kalachakra medicine, yoga, philosophy, astrology and science.
