Like them, I believe it is possible a world with Neo-Humanist education, environmental balance and spiritual values.”
Barley is a college student at Warren Wilson College in Asheville, NC studying Anthropology. She was introduced to the theory of Prout when Dada Maheshvarananda visited her school this past April. After playing a couple of cooperative games led by Dada and hearing about the volunteer opportunity in Caracas, she was inspired to spend her summer at Quinta Prout. She spends her time cooking lunches, growing veggies in the garden, and doing other various house chores. She gains inspiration for the garden from Centro Madre in Barlovento, that also rejuvenates her mind and soul. She is also studying intensively and gaining confidence as a yoga instructor.
