Benefits

The rewards for living and serving at Song of the Morning are many, and they are profound. Life at Song of the Morning means a life of “simple living and high thinking” as Paramahansa Yogananda - upon whose teachings we are founded - puts it. It means a community-centered life surrounded by nature, alongside a beautiful river, eating food from our organic garden which you yourself can help plant, grow, harvest, and cook. It means a life centered around meditation and devotion, and the highest ideals of ancient and authentic Yoga, which for thousands of years has shown us the way towards balancing heart, mind, body, and spirit. Our yogic teachings come directly from an ancient lineage of Indian sages, and carry transformative potentials of self-actualization and Self-realization. Living at Song of the Morning means being in a spiritualized environment where for 50 years folks have been meditating, singing, praying, and gathering for spiritual refreshment and relaxation - and that spiritually supportive environment is felt by all who come. It means living in conscious community with fellow staff, volunteers, and devotees living on-site or nearby. It means interesting conversations with fellow spiritually-minded individuals who might be visiting on a weekend retreat, or might be making Song of the Morning their permanent home. It means an invitation to nightly meditations, Sunday services, community potlucks, group dinners, book clubs, and quiet time to yourself to walk, read, reflect, traipse around in the snow in the winter or splash around in the river in the summer. 

Living at Song of the Morning is a non-traditional spiritually-centered life of fully dedicated service away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Pay starts at minimum wage, with room and board deducted from your paycheck, meaning the take-home stipend at the end of the month is relatively modest. However, if you desire to live simply you can find that all of your needs are met - with cozy accommodations provided and delicious vegetarian food cooked for (or by!) you. The right souls whose values are aligned will find that you are taken care of in mind, body, and soul.
