Lois, local poet and yogi, shared these words after Tuesday’s class, so I thought I would share them with whomever reads this blog post!  As far as we can tell, they were inspired by the Talmud, from our online research. Meanwhile, the photograph honors  the shrine tenders, who grace Patanjali’s post on the Turtle Haven land with beautiful flowers, and now a trinity of little orange pumpkins who smile at me each time I walk by…. may we each find small blessings such as these words, this pumpkin, these flowers, and the loveliness of Autumn, as we witness the profound challenges of the world and the earth itself at this time:

“Do not be daunted by the enormity of the world’s grief. Do justly, now. Love mercy, now. Walk humbly now. You are not obligated to complete the work, but neither are you free to abandon it.

Fall Quarter Yoga Schedule

Greetings! Just so all are aware, the Fall flyer did not indicate that classes will NOT happen the week of Thanksgiving, on Tuesday morning, nor Wednesday evening!

Enjoy the beauty of the season. Meditation on a pumpkin anyone? A few words from Henry David Thorea, great lover of the Bhagavad Gita:

“I would rather sit on a pumpkin, and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion.”
