LifeForce Yoga Meditation to Ride the Waves of Politics & Social Media
November 17, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm MST
How do we stay present without being washed overboard in these days darkened by political divisions and the constant waves of social media? Amy will explore this question and together we will practice a meditation to remain connected to our own True Nature, setting a steady course for ourselves and those we serve.
Live Music by Vasanta, Rudy and Sean of the kirtan group Savitur.
