We will have one more discussion on the Yoga Sutras, to be held on November 16th at 6:30 pm at the studio. From there, we will begin reading the Bhagavad Gita as translated by Eknath Easwaran. This is a wonderful read, focused on the discovery and fulfillment of our purpose, or dharma, in life. Easwaran’s commentary illuminates this classic of Indian spirituality, making the teachings accessible and applicable. I hope you can join us as we close out 2012 and begin to look toward the new year. Our first discussion on the Bhagavad Gita will be held Friday December 14th at 6:30 pm, at Dragonfly. Hope to see you all soon!
So, by now perhaps you have journeyed into the first bit of the Yoga Sutras. Maybe it is your first reading, or maybe you have read them many times. The beautiful thing about such a text is that they always seem to provide some subtle tidbit of information, no matter how often we have seen it before, that will take hold in our minds and serve to support our paths. Please share if this is true for you…which Sutra(s) stand out to you?
Greetings all! We will kick off our first month of the Dragonfly Book Club by reading Sri Swami Satchidanada’s translation of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. The Sutras outline the possible paths for our individual yogic journeys, offering us guidelines and wisdom to support us as we endeavor to grow and deepen our practice. Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the studio soon. We will take the month of September to read the book, during which book club members are encouraged to share commentary and thoughts via the Dragonfly Book Club blog. On September 28th at 6:30pm, join us at the studio to discuss the book as a community. Grab your cup of tea and start reading!!
Wishing each and every one of you a wonderful week–
Welcome to the Dragonfly Book Club forum. Starting in September we will be reading the yoga sutras and sharing our thoughts and questions here before we meet. There will be a sign-up sheet at the studio and books available for purchase. More information to come!!
