READING THE GOSPEL OF SRI RAMAKRISHNA
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.

In mid-January 2020 transiting Saturn catches up with transiting Pluto in the middle of the zodiacal sign of Capricorn. Saturn strives to create plans and goals to give form to new structures. Pluto tears down worn out structures in its desire to enable the expression of life’s essential nature. When these planets come together the struggle to hold on to goals and structures one has built comes into confrontation with the desire to tear down and start over again. This class will discuss how these energies are manifesting in our society and our lives based on our natal chart.Please RSVP to Judith at JudithARobert@gmail.com.
