Happy Holidays

ASC would like to wish you a very happy holiday season! May your celebrations be warm, loving and peaceful; may you rejoice in the company of family and friends; and may you enter the new year with renewed energy and wisdom.

We would like to invite you to come join our last event of the year: a midnight yoga and meditation practice on New Year’s Eve – absolutely free, made possible by the generosity of our volunteers. So just come on down and welcome the New Year with like minded friends : )

Warmest wishes,

Final Thoughts

Love is swift, sincere, pious, joyful, generous, strong, patient, faithful, prudent, long-suffering, courageous, and never seeking her own; for wheresoever we seek our own, there we fall from love.
~ Thomas A Kempis

#41_November 2015 – Reflections

pondering kid










Having our teachers Lama Marut and Lama Cindy here last month has been so wonderful and inspiring. Every time they teach, I find my practice and understanding open up in new ways and taking new directions. As the year comes to a close, I’ll be taking some time to reflect on these teachings and how I can really live in the truth of what I learned. I invite you to do the same, and if you’ve been inspired like I have, do join our sangha by becoming a member.

I’m also very excited to be presenting our last event of the year: a midnight yoga and meditation practice on New Year’s Eve. Check out details below or on our website. I hope to see you there!

With all best wishes,

“Two forces pervade human life, the Gita says: the upward thrust of evolution and the downward pull of our evolutionary past.”
