Dominion Resources (Dominion) and its partners are in the application process to build a 500-mile natural gas pipeline from West Virginia to the Atlantic coast. The most recent proposed path for the Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP) is within thousands of feet of Yogaville, a peaceful Ashram in rural Virginia that serves as a spiritual center where thousands of people from diverse faiths and backgrounds live and visit in order to live a healthy, peaceful and useful life.
Construction of the ACP impacts Satchidananda Ashram—Yogaville, Inc. on many levels, including impact on the natural environment (the aquifer, creeks, river, soil, air, and wildlife habitats); on cultural and historical sites (including sacred Native American burial grounds); and on the Ashram’s health, safety, lifestyle, and ability to survive financially, which depends on serving as a spiritual retreat and learning center.
