We’ll practice locating and engaging, specific muscles in commonly practiced Yoga poses to help keep your back stable, strong, limber, and pain-free. We’ll talk about the female pelvis, look at variations in our own pelvic structures, and how all this relates to taking care of our backs. We will touch on several causes of back pain that can be helped through mindful application of Yoga, and how healthy movement patterns on and off the mat can keep us feeling good.

Carl Jung believed dreams were direct communications from the unconscious to the conscious, and therefore an opportunity for personal growth. If you’re not familiar with dream interpretation, the process is quite simple: learn to remember your dreams and develop your intuition. But since it’s often much easier to interpret someone else’s dream than your own, we’ll share our dreams in a supportive environment to benefit from each others’ intuitive insights.If you have any recent dreams to share, please type each one up and give it a title. Then bring your written dreams for the group to work on. Love Donation

Some of us honor the Cherokee tradition by wearing a skirt but this is optional.

On the 4th Tuesday 7 – 8:30 p.m. 
Andrew Harvey once said that if he could take only one book to a deserted island “The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna” would be his choice. The book is written in dialogue form detailing the conversations Ramakrishna had with people that came to see him. It records his moods, his songs, his humor and gives one a sense of what it would be like to be in the presence of a Divine Incarnation. Using wonderful analogies, Ramakrishna discusses some of the most profound spiritual topics and his own spiritual experiences. We will stop often for discussion and sharing. I will have extra copies for everyone.
On Sundays from 11 a.m. to noon. 
Do you feel stressed and unable to find time to just Be? Do you find it difficult to meditate at home with so many distractions? Come join us on Sunday mornings. According to the great mystic Meister Eckhart: “Wherever this Word (of God) is to be heard, it must occur in stillness and Silence. We cannot be of greater service to this Word than through stillness and silence. There we can hear and understand it correctly.” Sermon 18. We will begin the hour with 20 minutes of silent meditation. We will then do a 5 minute silent walking meditation followed by another 20 minutes of silence.
