Yoga Book Club

All in-person and virtual students are welcome to attend my Yoga Book Club, which has been meeting every other month since 2008 to discuss inspirational books on a wide range of holistic topics including yoga philosophy, spiritual growth, the natural world and more. Members take turns hosting in our homes, around a bonfire, on Zoom - or even poolside! Our discussions are made all the more enjoyable by the healthy vegan dishes everyone brings to share for our dinner potlucks. Contact me if you'd like to join.

Our Current Book Selection

Atlas of the Heart

by Brene Brown

atlas

In Atlas of the Heart, Brown takes us on a journey through eighty-seven of the emotions and experiences that define what it means to be human. As she maps the necessary skills and an actionable framework for meaningful connection, she gives us the language and tools to access a universe of new choices and second chances—a universe where we can share and steward the stories of our bravest and most heartbreaking moments with one another in a way that builds connection.

Over the past two decades, Brown’s extensive research into the experiences that make us who we are has shaped the cultural conversation and helped define what it means to be courageous with our lives. Atlas of the Heart draws on this research, as well as on Brown’s singular skills as a storyteller, to show us how accurately naming an experience doesn’t give the experience more power—it gives us the power of understanding, meaning, and choice.

Brown shares, “I want this book to be an atlas for all of us, because I believe that, with an adventurous heart and the right maps, we can travel anywhere and never fear losing ourselves.”

We will discuss this book on Wednesday, June 8, 2022.

Evening time and location TBD (possible outdoors, in-person).

RSVP by June 6.
