    Shree Yoga Book Club Meeting: The Dictionary of Lost Words by Pip Williams

    Sunday, March 10,  3:30~5:30 pm In-person at Shree

    Read the book, bring a cup of tea and come sit with the Shree community.  All are welcome!  Free.

    Esme is born into a world of words. Motherless and irrepressibly curious, she spends her childhood in the Scriptorium, an Oxford garden shed in which her father and a team of dedicated lexicographers are collecting words for the very first Oxford English Dictionary. Young Esme’s place is beneath the sorting table, unseen and unheard. One day a slip of paper containing the word bondmaid flutters beneath the table. She rescues the slip and, learning that the word means “slave girl,” begins to collect other words that have been discarded or neglected by the dictionary men.

    As she grows up, Esme realizes that words and meanings relating to women’s and common folks’ experiences often go unrecorded. And so she begins in earnest to search out words for her own dictionary: the Dictionary of Lost Words. To do so she must leave the sheltered world of the university and venture out to meet the people whose words will fill those pages.

    Set during the height of the women’s suffrage movement and with the Great War looming, The Dictionary of Lost Words reveals a lost narrative, hidden between the lines of a history written by men. Inspired by actual events, author Pip Williams has delved into the archives of the Oxford English Dictionary to tell this highly original story. The Dictionary of Lost Words is a delightful, lyrical, and deeply thought-provoking celebration of words and the power of language to shape the world.

    Shree Yoga Book Club Meeting: Our Missing Hearts by Celeste Ng

    Sunday, April 28,  3:30~5:30 pm In-person at Shree

    Read the book, bring a cup of tea and come sit with the Shree community.  All are welcome!  Free.

    Twelve-year-old Bird Gardner lives a quiet existence with his loving father, a former linguist who now shelves books in a university library. His mother Margaret, a Chinese American poet, left without a trace when he was nine years old. He doesn’t know what happened to her—only that her books have been banned—and he resents that she cared more about her work than about him. 

    Then one day, Bird receives a mysterious letter containing only a cryptic drawing, and soon he is pulled into a quest to find her. His journey will take him back to the many folktales she poured into his head as a child, through the ranks of an underground network of heroic librarians, and finally to New York City, where he will finally learn the truth about what happened to his mother, and what the future holds for them both.

    Our Missing Hearts is an old story made new, of the ways supposedly civilized communities can ignore the most searing injustice. It’s about the lessons and legacies we pass on to our children, and the power of art to create change.

    Mother’s Day Mehndi

    With Henna Artist Rachel Dewan, Saturday, May 11,  2:00 ~ 4:00 pm In-person at Shree

    Mother’s Day is a day to celebrate, creation, creativity and the feminine divine. In this workshop we will do an hour long, all levels yoga practice, creating beautiful poses together. We will spend some time reflecting on what it means to be a creative person (even if children are not what you have chosen to create in your own life). Then Rachel will hand paint a beautiful mehndi body art design on you, an outward reflection of the inner beauty of the feminine divine that lives inside each of us.
    Mehndi is the oldest form of body art still in existence today. A paste containing a plant-based dye created from the henna tree (also known as Egyptian privet, and mignonette tree) is used to decorate the body with a temporary tattoo that lasts 1 – 2 weeks. Email Rachel with questions: rdyogamama@gmail.com
    Although it is rare, henna can stain clothing it comes in contact with so you may want to dress in dark colors or wear clothes you don’t care about getting stained.
    If you are want to register two people, make a duplicate reservation under your name.

    Shree Yoga Book Club Meeting: The Salt Path by Raynor Winn

    Sunday, June 2,  3:30~5:30 pm In-person at Shree

    Read the book, bring a cup of tea and come sit with the Shree community.  All are welcome!  Free.

    The true story of a couple who lost everything and embarked on a transformative journey walking the South West Coast Path in England.

    Just days after Raynor Winn learns that Moth, her husband of thirty-two years, is terminally ill, their house and farm are taken away, along with their livelihood. With nothing left and little time, they make the brave and impulsive decision to walk the 630 miles of the sea-swept South West Coast Path, from Somerset to Dorset, through Devon and Cornwall.

    Carrying only the essentials for survival on their backs, they live wild in the ancient, weathered landscape of cliffs, sea, and sky. Yet through every step, every encounter, and every test along the way, their walk becomes a remarkable and life-affirming journey. Powerfully written and unflinchingly honest, The Salt Path is ultimately a portrayal of home—how it can be lost, rebuilt, and rediscovered in the most unexpected ways.
