“Before enlightenment; chop wood, carry water. After enlightenment; chop wood, carry water.” -Zen Koan

Karma Yoga is the practice of bridging mindful awareness with your actions. 

It is central to our practice at Clear Sky because we believe that bringing mindful awareness into our activities makes us more more clear, compassionate and effective at work, at home and in our relationships. And from there we can change the world!

Mindful Karma Yoga can include seasonal activities such as:

  • General maintenance on the property (for example, chopping firewood or shovelling snow in the fall and winter);
  • Gardening, weeding, and harvesting in our garden or food forest (spring & summer);
  • Simple ironing or cleaning activities. 

People often find this a supportive part of their day, particularly in a short retreat. They report feeling more energized and focussed when they go back to their formal practice.

We’re at 3567 Cockell Road, Bull River, B.C., Canada.
