Tumbling toward Mabon

Today we tumble toward Mabon.

The Considered Kula

It’s another beautiful late summer day, and I am emerging from a weekend spent with Bill Mahony, author of Exquisite Love, and my teacher Sara Davidson Flanders, at All That Matters in Wakefield, RI, reflecting on the Nārada Bhakti Sūtras in a workshop entitled “Return to Love.”

Return to Love Workshop Description.

Among other things, I appreciated that Bill thanked those who were not present, especially those who enabled us to be there to steep in these deep teachings. I thought to my beloved congregation, and the activities in which they were engaging: fall cleanup, a presence at town day, and a Sunday service in appreciation of the “Days of Awe.”

I don’t quite yet know what to say about the weekend, except that I feel very full. It is interesting that Bill closed the session, according to tradition, with a mantra I included here recently (“A Place of Profound Individuality”…

Please join us at Sangha Yoga Collective Sunday, September 22 at 4 pm for a Free Community Class. I’ll be observing the Autumnal Equinox, and gratefully accepting donations to the Merrimack Valley Food Bank.

The Autumnal Equinox marks the beginning of the fall season, and is marked by equal amounts of daylight and night. In this class, we’ll explore the concept of equipoise in balance poses. Balance poses are an excellent way to explore the concept of balanced action, in this case between some of the Universal Principles of Alignment.

On the following day, Monday, September 23, in my regular 6 pm Aligned Flow class at Sangha, I’ll continue this Equinox theme by exploring the virtue of equanimity, what the yogis call upekśa.

New Aligned Flow Series Begins Monday September 9!

Richard teaching Yoga in the Park

Richard teaching yoga at Boardinghouse Park in Lowell, through Sangha Yoga Collective’s “Yoga in the Park” this summer.

I’ll be returning to Sangha Yoga Collective on Market Street in Lowell this Fall for a six-week Aligned Flow series. Join me beginning on Monday, September 9 at 6 pm. Teaching at the University as I do, the start of the academic year is always like “New Year’s” to me. For the first class we’ll be looking at foundations of our poses, and the meaning in yoga philosophy of the number 9—meeting as we are on 9/9. I’ll be honoring the studio’s Collective Cards. Also, if you sign up for the six-week series ($72), you can save even more.

Please also join us at Sangha’s Fall Open House on September 15 from 10-5 pm. I’ll be giving a free demonstration class during the Open House.

I’m pleased to be continuing at Sangaha, a sweet oasis in downtown Lowell. As a student of Anusara Yoga, trained by a former Certified Anusara instructor, I’m also excited to be bringing an alignment-based flow yoga to the area. All life is flow, and alignment brings wisdom to our participation in it.
