Keeping Clean & Going Green! DIY Your Own Personal Care & Household Cleaning Products: In this program, you will learn how to make your own toothpaste, face cleanser, laundry soap, and more! Let us embrace simpler methods of body care and house cleaning that will be healthier for you and the environment. By making your own cleaning products, you not only save money, but you also limit the environmental impact of industrial waste, traveling to the store, and waste disposal. We will put an ayurvedic twist on some of these products as well to make them just right for the season and your constitution. Please bring a few small containers with you so you can take home samples. Fee: $20 (ID#: S47) —

Reflect, Renew, Recharge: HIB's Women's Getaway Weekend in Honesdale, PA: Retreat with Mary Gail & Aradhana

Friday, September 14, 7:30pm - Sunday, September 16, noon.

Join us for HI Buffalo’s second fall getaway to the Himalayan Institute’s campus in Honesdale, PA. This special program, featuring Mary Gail Sovik and Irene (Aradhana) Petryszak, has been designed just for us! Our weekend will include lectures and discussions on various topics that relate to bringing understanding and harmony to our daily lives, hatha classes, guided relaxation, and a guided meditation after each session. Come and explore the wisdom of the Bhagavad Gita in how to deal with expectations; find out how the sages coped with failure on their spiritual path (but kept on going!); and learn how every action in life is sadhana (spiritual practice). We will share engaging inspirational stories (feel free to bring along your favorite), reflect on what is important to us as women, and contemplate how we can feel nurtured and renewed.
Need a ride? We got a van. $50 gets you there and back in style. Departs from HIB at 10:30am Fri., Sept. 14th. Departs from Honesdale after lunch on Sunday. Call or email to reserve your seat!
