“A chance for connection along the spiritual path.
Yoga, in both its deepest and broadest essences, is the actuality of movement from the illusion of separation into the reality of connection and wholeness. It is both journey and destination.
For many of us, we get to live moments of wholeness while on the mat or meditation cushion, but translating that ‘being-ness’ into the process of our day-to-day lives can leave us feeling anything but whole. These monthly group opportunities are a time to connect with others navigating a spiritual path that wends through a greater world. Swami Jaya Devi taught of the importance of owning and embracing all of life - our circumstances, choices and experiences; both our highs and our lows - as our path. The meetings are intended to support us as we work to honor all of our life as our path and use it all as fuel for our spiritual growth.
After a brief opening meditation, each group gathering will begin with an opportunity for each member to share, without ‘cross-talk’, whatever feels particularly present for them in the process of their spiritual growth or the integration of their spiritual work into their life, as a whole. Once everyone has had a chance to share, the remaining time will allow for a more interactive experience. We will close the space with another brief meditation.
The monthly gatherings are facilitated by a long-time resident and monk in our Kashi lineage, who will help hold a safe container for participants’ experiences and may share from teachings they’ve been fortunate to have received along their own path thus far.
By donation. Space is limited to six participants. Advance registration is encouraged.”
