“There is no enlightenment outside of daily life,” according to Thich Nhat Hanh. Yoga is a practical way to experience everyday spirituality, develop mindfulness and nourish mind, body and spirit. If you would like an opportunity to explore the spiritual aspects of a solid practice, this discussion group could be for you. Designed for women who have never experienced yoga, for beginning yoga students, and for experienced yogis! It is for any woman interested in the power of a combined practice of yoga and the search for her own definition of spirituality. Topics may include: differences between Eastern and Western spirituality; the research behind benefits of mindfulness meditation; practical strategies of Buddhist principles; brain chemistry and spiritual experience; what your difficult people can teach you; choosing peace over conflict; the pursuit of happiness. Articles from a wide range of sources will be provided and used as a catalyst for discussion. Materials by Pema Chodron, Sylvia Boorsein, Ram Dass, Sharon Salzberg, Thich Nhat Hanh, Jack Kornfield and Mark Nepo may be used in this discussion group. This is not a yoga class; although the many benefits of practicing yoga will be addressed.
An idea that matters:
Breathe, relax and feel the body receive its own truth.
