My Time at Kripalu — By Kate Quin-Easter

For four months I, and 30+ other folks, will be residents of Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. We are long-term volunteers, some for only four months and others for 8 or even 12 months. We are lawyers, recent college graduates, non-profit administrators, ex-Ph.D students, mediators and, above all, folks who are finding our way through the confines and freedom of working at one of the nation’s leading retreat and renewal centers. We work in the kitchen cutting vegetables, in offices doing data-entry, outside – plowing now and mowing soon, and assisting the over 500 guests that are regularly in-house with finding their way around the maze of our building.

My ‘blog will be about my experiences at Kripalu Center – the joys, the lows, the crying jags and the wonder of watching god emerge through the blossoming of the flowers. I will talk about my hikes, my weekends away, the monthly volunteer cake and the parties. I will try to detail the physical, spiritual and emotional changes that happen to me throughout these months.
