New Year New Offerings
My spiritual study for 2015 kicked off with a perfect start on Monday night with Charu Ramesh’s introductory class to the Yoga Sutras. The class was relaxed yet illuminating at the same time. I gave my mind and body a long break over the holidays, so it was like a drink of spring water for my dehydrated mind, as she skilfully explained a deeply profound text in layman’s words. The simple essence of the text is that suffering is caused by turbulence in the mind and the practice of Yoga is all about how to stop this churning of the mind. What are the causes of this churning? What are the obstacles we will face in the practice? These questions were all explained in the class. If you missed it, there are three more classes over the next three Monday evenings which includes a review of the previous class.
This year the ASC team have planned many more new courses and events for you. Coming up soon is a Fire Purification ceremony, Thangka drawing and painting, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction talk and book club. We have planned something for everyone this year – so stay tuned and hope to see you at one of them soon.
Here’s to a fun and awakening 2015!
A Final Thought
“And that is how change happens. One gesture. One person.
One moment at a time.”
