Yoga Book Club

All Yoga Room students are welcome to join our 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 their homes - or even poolside when the weather is nice! Our discussions are made even more enjoyable by the healthy vegan dishes everyone brings to share for our dinner potlucks. Contact Christy if you'd like to join!

Real Change: Mindfulness to Heal Ourselves and the World

by Sharon Salzberg

real change_

In today’s fractured world, we’re constantly flooded with breaking news that causes anger, grief, and pain. People are feeling more stressed out than ever, and in the face of this fear and anxiety they can feel so burnt out and overwhelmed that they end up frozen in their tracks and unable to do anything. In Real Change, Sharon Salzberg, a leading expert in lovingkindness meditation, shares sage advice and indispensable techniques to help free ourselves from these negative feelings and actions. She teaches us that meditation is not a replacement for action, but rather a way to practice generosity with ourselves and summon the courage to break through boundaries, reconnect to a movement that’s bigger than ourselves, and have the energy to stay active.

Consulting with veteran activists and social-change agents in a variety of fields, Salzberg collects and shares their wisdom and offers the best practical advice to foster transformation in both ourselves and in society. To help tame our inner landscape or chaos, Salzberg offers mindfulness practices that will help readers cultivate a sense of agency and stay engaged in the long-term struggle for social change.

Whether you’re resolving conflicts with a crotchety neighbor or combating global warming, Real Change will provide fundamental principles and mindfulness practices to help guide you to the clarity and confidence to lift a foot and take the next step into a better world.

We will discuss this book on Wednesday, October 27, 2021, 6pm. RSVP for location.

RSVP to Christy by Oct 25.
