My name is Sama Atmashakti Ananda. I am currently studying for a Masters's in Landscape Architecture at the University of Virginia. I am also a land manager at Hiranyagarbha Yuga Ashram (HYA) in SW Virginia. HYA is a spiritual ashram focused on enlightened ways of living including wholistic system design, sustainable food systems, and natural building.

I did my undergrad in Environmental Analysis at Pitzer College. I Love spending time outside and am passionate about reconnecting people to the environment they live in.
