Practices for Lasting Peace with Kerry

Thursday, September 19, 7-8:30pm
Achieving peace in our world, society, community, family - and most of all within oneself is a desire common to virtually all of humanity, but history and our own personal stories show us again and again how deeply challenging that desire is to realize. As Pandit Rajmani Tigunait outlines in his book, Why We Fight: Practices for Lasting Peace (available in our bookstore), lasting societal change and transformation must begin in the hearts and minds of the individual. His book provides useful guidance drawn from many spiritual traditions and specific practices to sow the seeds of personal transformation. Join with others for a discussion of the book and our personal experiences with the practices offered within.
This 4-Part Series will meet: Sept. 19, Oct. 17, Nov. 21 & Dec. 19 (3rd Thursdays of the month). Fee: $10 (ID#: S78) —

Finding Faith in Yoga with Rolf Sovik, PsyD

Thursday, September 26, 7-8:30pm
We live in a world of doubt, but it is the nature of yoga to supply us with an understanding of faith, as well as to be in itself an object of faith. Join Dr. Sovik to explore how yoga scriptures such as the Yoga Sutra, The Bhagavad Gita, and others help us remove doubt and cultivate inner strength and hope.
Rolf Sovik, PsyD. is the President and Spiritual Director of the Himalayan Institute and a long-time teacher of yoga and meditation. Fee: $25 (ID#: S80) —
