IN THE SLIDE SHOW TO THE RIGHT
One of the original inspirations for the SASP Yurt was to provide a large, warm, enclosed space for the children of the SASP community who attend the monthly retreats. We have now expanded our retreat activities to include a special program for the children so that they may also feel more a part of the growing "gnostic community" that the adult members of the community have been striving toward.
The 30-foot diameter yurt is located in the northeast corner of the SASP property next to the tennis court. This semi-permanent structure is built on a secure foundation with wall-to-wall carpeting, screened windows and central fan for the summer months and a heating system for the winter months. (The roof of the yurt has a 15-year warranty.)
In addition to providing a warm, welcoming space for the SASP children's program, the yurt gives us extra space for presentations, concerts, study programs and various indoor physical activities (asanas, tai chi, pranayama, etc), and provides a larger group space for any other presentations would be unsuitable for the meditation hall.
