2Rev Stana Knez = "Seva is a Sanskrit word meaning “selfless service” or work performed without any thought of personal reward or repayment. In a number of spiritual teachings, seva is a spiritual practice believed to grow & evolve us spiritually, while at the same time, contributing to the wellbeing of all life. At Cascade Center, we also teach the importance of giving not only of what you have, but also of
who you are. Each month we choose a shared activity or project for an agency or group in our area. We refer to that monthly practice as seva. Our seva projects assist us in realizing how inter-connected & inter-dependent we are with others no matter their circumstances or ours. It cultivates our sense of compassion as we sense & experience first-hand that there is no separation between ourselves & others.To paraphrase what Martin Luther King Jr once said, anyone can serve who has a soul generated by love.
