Book Study Groups
We have been enjoying a book study group since January 2021. The camaraderie, connection, wisdom, and authentic self-expression that we have shared, as well as the inspiration and learning we enjoyed through the pages of our books, was and continues to be AMAZING!
If you are wondering about the “more” of yoga, and are interested in growing, learning and connecting with others in a deeply meaningful way: join us! Participating in a group of like-minded individuals, to explore books that are more than meets the eye, is so special and such fun. We broaden our understandings of the books and ourselves and are often inspired to apply our new understandings to our lives, in ways that we could not have imagined.
All sessions on Zoom, moderated by Julianne Rice, these groups meet twice per month and cover one book per approx. 4-5 month semester, at a pace allowing for depth of contemplation and discussion.
What to Expect:
Connection. Inspiration. Wisdom.
• A chance to look at ideas carefully through your own and other people's experiences.
• Gentle, structured schedule of reading assignments.
• A really good time with friends you haven't met yet.
• Each session will begin and end with centering,
and will include deep respectful listening, sharing and/or group discussion

“When you take care of a tree in its growth, in due time it blossoms into flowers and then gives its natural culmination which is the fruit. Likewise the practice of yoga has to culminate sooner or later in the spiritual fragrance of freedom and beatitude. As the essence of the tree is contained in the fruit, so too the essence of your practice is contained in its fruit of freedom, poise, peace and beatitude.””
Winter Semester’s Possible Upcoming Book
by B.K.S. Iyengar
“I have often said that yoga is meditation, and meditation is yoga. Meditation is the stilling of the movements of consciousness. It is bringing the turbulent sea to a state of flat calm. This calm is not torpid or inert. It is a deep tranquility, pregnant with all the potential of creation.””
