Learn Neelakantha Deep Meditation:

A Foundational Course for a Lifetime of Natural Easeful Meditation

With Elizabeth Doberneck Authorized Neelakantha Meditation Teacher & ERYT 500

Saturday and Sunday afternoon, February 15 and 16

Neelakantha Meditation is a profoundly effective practice of deep meditation.

Many people who have struggled to meditate in the past are delighted to discover how smoothly and deeply they are able to meditate after learning this method. Neelakantha Meditation is simple to learn and practice.  Based on the elegant and sophisticated methods of the Tantric Yoga tradition, it does not involve forced concentration or control of the mind.  Just a few minutes a day reduces stress and fatigue and increases clarity, steadiness, ease and well-being.  Formal personal instruction is the basis for a potent and rewarding practice that over time can bring about genuine life transformation toward greater happiness and fulfillment.  Details and registration.

Shree Book Club Meeting

The Overstory

by Richard Powers

Sunday, March 15 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.

The Overstory, winner of the Pulitzer Prize in Fiction, is a sweeping, impassioned work of activism and resistance that is also a stunning evocation of—and paean to—the natural world. From the roots to the crown and back to the seeds, Richard Powers’s twelfth novel unfolds in concentric rings of interlocking fables that range from antebellum New York to the late twentieth-century Timber Wars of the Pacific Northwest and beyond. There is a world alongside ours—vast, slow, interconnected, resourceful, magnificently inventive, and almost invisible to us. This is the story of a handful of people who learn how to see that world and who are drawn up into its unfolding catastrophe.
