Spring Quarter Begins April 9th!

The Spring Quarter will begin April 9th, and a flyer is here. Please feel free to pass along the flyer.
Also please note that Ravi Ravindra will be here the last week-end of the month; he will offer a public talk on Friday night March 30th at First Congregational Church on Cornwall Street at 7:30 pm, with a suggested donation of $15 to benefit Maher Ashram.
Also, on the 26th, I will be offering the two classes I have been mentioning in announcements this week. There will be a 5:30- 7pm class, Opening the Heart: Backbends for All Levels, followed by a Discussion at 7:15 of the Sutra I-33, on compassion from Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. The discussion will be followed by a breath awareness (pranayama) period that leads into sitting meditation. I invite any of you to attend for free; if you have the resources/desire to donate money, I am suggesting $10 to $15 per each of the two classes with proceeds in full to be donated to Mercycorps International.
When you inhale, you are taking the strength from God. When you exhale, it represents the service you are giving to the world.  BKS Iyengar

UPDATE: Unfortunately, James is now unable to be in Bellingham. So the Thursday event below is cancelled. There may, however, be an alternate kirtan event on Friday with Paul. Please check back for more info.

Just about a month ago, James Boag presented a talk and kirtan with Paul at 8Petals, and the evening was rich and inspiring. We imagined that James, who generally resides in India would not be back until Spring, but he will surprisingly and happily be returning shortly, and you can read about his teachings with Paul in the information shown below. Paul will offer kirtan as part of the offerings I am hosting at Turtle Haven on October 23rd; this is a reminder that if you wish to partake of any of the events that day, I would like to have registrations by Sunday, the 16th! I appreciate your honoring of this date, so I may organize for parking and potential carpooling. I hope you might find some time to enjoy an Autumn day at Turtle Haven.

‘Yoga: The Heart of it’ Talk and short kirtan with James Boag.
Thursday 20th October 7:15-9:15pm at 8 Petals, Bellingham

Using a beautiful short poem as a start point, this talk will illustrate the core teachings of the holistic, wonderfully inclusive and practical yoga tradition. Integrating different approaches and aspects of practice, the talk will also show how to apply these teachings into all aspects of our lives, so we can live more heartfully, with greater purpose, clarity and joy.


Suggested donation: $10-40

‘Tonight the topic is love’ with James Boag and Paul Millage
Friday 21st October 7:15-9:45pm at 8 Petals, Bellingham

Join Paul and James for an inspiring evening of poetry, stories, insights and kirtan.

Poetry, stories and song are universal means, treasured by wisdom traditions from all around the globe, to help us unveil and recognise the beauty, glory and immensity of the love and light that is our essence. This should be an evening to remember!


Suggested donation $10-40

Also, in Bellingham, Paul is leading a kirtan on Friday 14th October and an acroyoga playground workshop on Saturday 22nd October. Further details below:
