Let's gather, Yogis and non-yogis alike, for good reads to inspire conscious introspection and thoughtful conversation.

March 1st - FALLING AWAKE - How to Practice Mindfulness in Everyday Life By Jon Kabat-Zinn.

The book focuses on the "how" of mindfulness--explaining how meditation brings us into intimate relationship with all our senses, how to establish a formal meditation practice, and how to overcome some of the common obstacles to incorporating meditation into daily life in an age of perpetual self-distraction. By "coming to our senses"--both literally and metaphorically--we can become more compassionate, more embodied, more aware human beings, and in the process, contribute to the healing of the body politic as well as our own lives in ways both little and big.

Discussion led by local author and librarian Evan Harris.

Attendance is by donation but please sign up so we can know how much soup to make.

Lucid Dreaming + Building Intuition With Arielle Hayat

Dreamtime can be a sacred place to explore consciousness. Lucid dreaming provides you an excellent opportunity to see your shadows in the waking reality. This often results in dramatic physical, mental and emotional healing.

Lucid dreamers can more effectively harness their intuition because when dreaming, the conscious mind can’t hijack the intuition with its ego. Intuition is all there is. This is the key to gaining insights, answers, and discovering the unknown.

With the help of some moon loving plants like mugwort, we will explore how to work with plant energies to enhance intuition and the ability to induce restful sleep with vivid dreams.
