Okay, it is official, this “Book Club” is actually a deep delving into the concepts of the beautiful book, Heart of Yoga by TKV Desikachar. It’s not the completion but the experience and process! The yogins who came are in for the long hall. If you were present today–bless you for your clarity and courage to step into this in depth study of yoga. If you are planning to come, COME! We are creating a community of “like minded folks” based on this incredible pithy book.
One of the topics was, what is yoga:
“Sustained Joy for Me”
“Another path to God and Truth…Another way up the mountain”
“Fidelity to the self”
We wallowed in the quotes from page 6 and 7. Check them out.
We have homework:
1) Read the introduction through to page 17.
2) Come up with a real example for each of the following.

I am so grateful for this opportunity to experience this book another time. Wisdom is so amazing.
