Interfaith Prayer

Honored and humbled to be asked by Retreat House Spirituality Center to lead an interfaith prayer today. This is the 2nd time I've done it, and once again, I was blown away by the positive reception.

Looking forward to partnering with them more often for interfaith work through their Common Grounds initiative.

It's wonderful to read different translations of the Bhagavad Gita to compare them to one another. Sanskrit is an amazing spiritual language full of nuance.

Journey Through the Gita w/ Champaka 02/21/2021

Journey Through the Gita w/ Champaka

I am a teacher, but I am first and foremost always a student! This will be starting just as we wind down our Wednesday night classes. I'm excited this course uses both Ranchor Prime's as well as A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami's Bhagavad Gitas. It also has...wait for it...a WORKBOOK! I've already had a few students from Wednesday night sign up for this course, and I'm signing up today! Let's form a little local group to go through this course together.

Journey Through the Gita w/ Champaka This 16-week introductory course is a comprehensive, systematic study of the philosophical basis of Bhakti as taught in the Bhagavad Gita.

02/16/2021

If you want to learn more about the Bhakti tradition I practice, I highly recommend this!

Bhakti 101 is a series of 4 classes which boil down the vast teachings of spirituality into 13 basic points using the Bhagavad-gita and Srimad Bhagavatam as it’s basis. Although profound concepts of philosophy will be covered, the material will be presented in a way that is clear and easy to understand.



PARTS I & II

1:00-3:00PM EST
SAT. FEB. 20
SUN. FEB. 21


We’ll be using our regular Wisdom of the Sages Zoom meeting link. If you don’t have it please write to [email protected] and request the link for Bhakti 101. 



This class is by donation. Donations can be sent to [email protected] on PayPal.



Topics to be discussed.



Class 1: The Illusion – Understanding yoga means first understanding the nature of how illusion binds one and how yoga releases one. The first class focuses on the nature of illusion, especially dealing with the topic of the mind. Points covered include…
1. What is yoga?
2. Material energy vs spiritual energy (purusha & prakriti)
3. What is the Nature of the Self? (atma)
4. The mind is the primary obstacle (the impulsive mind, the ego, the reflective mind)
5. The environment’s role in the illusion (karma, time & the gunas)
6. The world is like a reflection



Class 2: Paths Out of Illusion – Traditionally, four paths of yoga have been presented as ways to free one from illusion and restore one to their original divine nature. Two of them involve leaving the world behind, and two are practiced through engaging with the world. The second class presents Ashatnga-yoga, Jnana-yoga, Karma-yoga and Bhakti-yoga – their similarities and differences, as well as their practical application in the current age.

Points covered include…

7. To reject society or embrace society? (The 4 Paths of Yoga)



Class 3: Progression on the Path – Spirituality in general, can be understood as a practice of purifying how we see the world and what motivates us, from the level of materialism, to escapism, to devotion. Yoga texts refer to these world views as Karma, Jnana, and Bhakti. This class will discuss these three fundamental motives, the relative value of each, and the progression towards purity in our motives and world view. Points covered include…

8. The progression from materialism to escapism to devotion
9. The progression represented in the Vedic literature
10. The progression represented in the Vedic cosmology
11. The progression represented in the yoga paths



Class 4: Divinity at the Path’s End – Perhaps the most essential spiritual question is “What is the nature of the Divine?” Is God a person or an energy, and what is the nature of our relationship? This class will examine both personal and non-personal conceptions of divinity and highlight a synthesis of these ideas as presented in Bhagavad-gita and Srimad Bhagavatam. Points covered include…

12. Devotion vs monism
13. The divine energy, the divine companion, the divine Person (brahman, paramatma, bhagavan)

Good advice from my friends at Wise Skies

This week in Astrology: January 18-24
Finding order through chaos

Saturn semisquare Neptune (Jan 20th): Saturn's influence requires boundaries, checklists, and an order of operations. On the other hand Neptune represents the unknown. Stick with (or start) your spiritual disciplines to make it through a foggy time: meditation, prayer, yoga, time in nature. Get into a routine - same time every day. Stay curious, see what can happen…

Hope you'll get something from this chapter of the Gita and join us soon. Please feel free to comment or ask any questions that may come up for you as you listen/read.

[12/07/20]   Asana + yoga philosophy = a complete yoga practice!

Join me this Sunday from 12:30 - 1:30 as I take you through a short yoga asana sequence which can be done daily.

Bhagavad Gita Chapter 2 part 2 and Chapter 3 - another version

Casual Sunday look and mood! One of our regulars from the Wednesday classes couldn't make it, so I arranged for us to have a one on one! Was so much fun, and I could tailor the message just for her. Even though we discussed the Gita Wisdom in a different way that went a little deeper into the specifics of my wisdom tradition (which she has also chosen), my hope is there will be something for everyone in what we
discussed.

Bhagavad Gita Class 3 - Chapter 2 part 2 and Chapter 3

Even though it was only two of us, it was really fun! After we were through with the chapters, we chatted for awhile knowing it was being recorded. Hope some of what we discussed may be of value to you!

Perfect eclipse message for today from a friend of a friend. Whether you follow Vedic astrology and say this is about "where you're comfortable, and what is it you value," or Western astrology where it's all about "the choices you make and your relationships to those choices." Whether we actually live by ourselves, or if we live with another, we need to value highly/have a good relationship with our inner selves.
May we all go deeper today and for the rest of this time when everything is getting shaken to the core.
"I think this reflects one of the deepest insights I've come to in this time of Covid, living as a solitaire, needing and being empowered to set and enforce personal space boundaries on the daily, orienting to my 'natural habitat of solitude' in a different and deeper level. After the decades of domesticity, my nest is not 'empty' but *full* in a way I hadn't anticipated, and may not have appreciated without Covid safe-at-home to force my attention there. What is "abundance" in aloneness? (Kinda like, what is the movement in stillness?!). Beyond and beneath all the truthful humor about--"I'm done washing anybody else's socks, thank you very much"--I've learned to embrace 'calibrated aloneness' as a gift in itself, not lack, not a 'thank god, but a deep, exhaling yeessss. It's been liberating personally, and my hope is that a paradigm may be shifting (post chaos) such deep relationships can live 'together' rhizomatically, rather than only as '2 peas in the same pod'! And I've learned something else, unexpected: many of us may age to the point of infirmity, when silence/solitude/isolation becomes our dailiness again--a time when memories, imagination, small moments of deep connection are what 'abundance' can mean, then. And I've learned that life as a solitaire is excellent preparation for this time, should it come. We have an extraordinarily rich 'inner life', we introverts of all kinds/degrees--and if that life has been filled with books, and art, and dancing, and love, and people you've lost who you can conjure up in a moment . . . these are good skills. I think they are one path to living abundantly--regardless of situation or circumstance."

Intro & Chapter 1: Bhagavad Gita Talks Between the Soul and God

A fun filled introduction to what the Bhagavad Gita is all about! Join us in this lively discussion and see if diving into the Gita is right for you.

[11/14/20]   This is perfectly in line with the recent shift of the nodes into Taurus/Scorpio. Stability and doing the deep work of healing from the chaos which Gemini/Sagittarius brought to the surface.

If this doesn't make a lot of sense, but somehow resonates with you, let's chat about you getting a reading from me! I combine astrology and tarot into an insightful look into your strengths & weaknesses and how you can move forward in your personal journey.

$75 for a 90 minute reading. I'll record it on Zoom,
and send you the recording along with your natal astrology chart and a photo of your tarot reading.
