We are actively seeking permanent residents who would like to explore our path of yoga and who find our community lifestyle enriching and fulfilling.
Polestar is seeking:
- Sincere individuals who are focused on their spiritual path and willing to try to harmonize their individual energy with the larger group energy
- Those who resonate with our core ideals; Spirit, Community and Lifelong Learning, and feel a connection to the universal teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda.
- Those who are willing to selflessly embrace the hard work and rewards offered by the energetic lifestyle Polestar offers.
- Those who would find an abundant flow of energy, of giving and receiving in community life, along with the humility and patience required to resolve conflict and misunderstandings.
Polestar invites participation in community on many levels.
If you resonate with our ideals and would like to get involved, there is plenty of opportunity whether you permanently reside here or not! Come to some of our weekly satsangs or events, sign up for a month of work study, volunteer at an event, take or teach a class, or visit for a week or two on “spiritual vacation”. We are seeking those who share our values and are willing to embrace the hard work and rewards offered by this energetic lifestyle.
The Membership Process:
The membership process begins with some type of participation in the life of the community. Joining the Ohana, attending events, retreats, or volunteering are all a starting point for exploring further involvement. Eventually, a residential program such as the Apprenticeship or Polestar Community Builders programs offer a full immersion in community life, and a solid grounding in the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda. By mutual consent, this can be lengthened to an extended residency which is the beginning of our “potential member” program. This is a time to go deep in the teachings of yoga, to develop one’s service within the community, and to solidify his or her financial opportunities for supporting oneself here. A potential member is eligible for full membership after 24 months of residency and/or community involvement. New members are accepted by a simple majority vote of all current members and board members.
We are also creating a residency opportunity specifically for seniors (we're looking ahead!). For the right individuals, a thriving yoga community can provide the perfect environment for retirement: enough privacy for rest and relaxation and plenty of opportunity to participate in the life and yoga practices of the community. For more information email or call Michael (808)443–9956.
