JAN 1    New Year’s SANKALPA:
                Guided Meditation, Yoga, and 
                Deep Resolution-Setting — 
                a mini-retreat . $45
                Monday . 11 am-3 pm

SANKALPA . SETTING RESOLVE — For those who want to start their new year in contemplation for meaningful intention-setting. Starting with a guided/silent meditation we ask ourselves the questions needed, to find our one most meaningful resolution, for the year. Followed by any writing of thoughts / questions / intentions arising from the meditation. Moving into 45-60 minutes of accessible yoga, stretch and flow, tapering into restorative yoga. A silent break with tea, snacks and personal thought/contemplation. Closing with a long deep yoga nidra to create space for answers and intention to arise, and set more deeply. We will take home the awareness, space and contemplation of the session, and our own stickers for around the house and car, to surprise and gently remind ourselves and perhaps others of what we hoped for from the year.

Jan. 29-Feb. 16    Book of Joy . $120
                                  WEEKDAYS
                                  7-8:15 AM

The Book of Joy is by The Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu. 
It is a wonderful book. Two of the world's wisest, most compassionate humans feel the true and deepest purpose of each of our lives is to find, and live in, real and lasting joy. This book is a joyful discussion and guide to doing that.

We will listen together in a casual setting — lying, sitting, meditating, mindfully moving to partake in a light breakfast, tea/coffee. Then we will learn, and do, the Joy Practices they offer.

Please register for the whole 15-day course at wallymaltz@mac.com. $150 includes daily light breakfast. I am very excited to offer this 15-day course and hope for a minimum of 10 participants.

Ahh, November.

A restorative mini-retreat.
