November 2019 
November is a time when our thoughts begin to turn inward. We may travel less, and spend more time indoors due to shorter daylight hours. We begin to think about spending time with family as the holidays approach. This is an important time for self-care, as well.
Join us for Thursday night yoga classes this month, designed to keep you healthy!
Treat yourself to the November 10 workshop and learn how to keep yourself centered in what can be a frenetic time of year.

Sacred Words
this month's wisdom quote
 a lovely poem by Fred LaMotte
A gentler world begins
in the way you touch your heart.
Be soft with the light inside you.
Caress your body with this breath.
God is nothing else
but the place where the sun comes up in your chest.
You are the glimmering destination.
You are the golden honey daubed
on the bread of the ordinary.
Whatever is perfect,
whatever is heavenly,
begins here.
