Full Moon Radiance Meditation

With Elizabeth Doberneck Friday, September 13 6:30 – 8:00 PM

$30 in advance, $35 at the door

The radiant light of the full moon is considered to be an especially conducive time for contemplative practice.  The serene rays of the moon reflect back to us the luminosity and wholeness that is the natural condition of our own consciousness.  This evening is an opportunity to take advantage of this monthly invitation to reconnect and deepen our access to inner clarity.

We’ll prepare for meditation by first inspiring the mind and heart with the famously beautiful teaching myths of the Shaiva Yoga Tradition about the quality of Soma, praised as the primordial nectar of immortality and understood to be the authentic nectarean essence of our own heart which we taste in deep meditation.

We’ll then move through a lunar cycle of the yoga practices of breath, mantra, and asana to ease the way inward.  Whether you already have a meditation practice or are seeking to cultivate one, this gathering will be an opportunity to go deep, to restore and nourish yourself.  Beginners welcome.  No prior experience needed.

Elizabeth Doberneck is a certified Anusara teacher and an authorized teacher of Neelakantha Deep Meditation as taught in Blue Throat Yoga.

Samudra Shakti

2019 USA Anusara Yoga Teacher’s Gathering

September 15-19, Estees Park, CO

Samudra Shakti acknowledges that the seat of the teacher must move around the room, must continually shift, to those who take up their own gifts, who show cultivation and whose self-empowerment invites the seat of the community.

This much more woven notion, where the hierarchy shifts authority to the community, requires new skills and a deeper involvement as we regard ourselves as holders of the immensely sophisticated system of Anusara Yoga.

Samudra Shakti is calling all licensed teachers to carry our mastery attained from our commitment to studentship, into the space of this gathering. By covering subjects from practice and teaching skills to professional development and beyond, Samudra Shakti is the weaving of our talents and gifts as a collective authority. Bring your passion, raise your voice and connect with the kula of the heart.

Shree Book Club Meeting

Inheritance: A Memoir of Genealogy, Paternity, and Love

by Dani Shapiro

Sunday, November 24 4:00 – 6:00 PM

Free and open to all.  Read the book, bring a mug for tea and come chat with the Shree community.

What makes us who we are? What combination of memory, history, biology, experience, and that ineffable thing called the soul defines us?

In the spring of 2016, through a genealogy website to which she had whimsically submitted her DNA for analysis, Dani Shapiro received the stunning news that her father was not her biological father. She woke up one morning and her entire history–the life she had lived–crumbled beneath her.

Inheritance is a book about secrets–secrets within families, kept out of shame or self-protectiveness; secrets we keep from one another in the name of love. It is the story of a woman’s urgent quest to unlock the story of her own identity, a story that has been scrupulously hidden from her for more than fifty years, years she had spent writing brilliantly, and compulsively, on themes of identity and family history. It is a book about the extraordinary moment we live in–a moment in which science and technology have outpaced not only medical ethics but also the capacities of the human heart to contend with the consequences of what we discover.
