After two lively discussions about The Four Agreements, we are ready to look ahead to our next 4yoga Book Club meeting! That meeting will be hosted by Alice and held on Sun., Sept. 20, 2020, at 1 p.m., so mark your calendars now for a chance to gather and discuss a text with other members of our community!
To choose a book, we reviewed lists generated by former attendees and organizers and solicited additional nominations on our Facebook page. We have narrowed those options down to three possibilities and now would like your input on which book we should choose for September.
Please take a look at the options below and, when you are ready to vote, complete this one-question survey. (Note: if you have ideas for books to consider for future meetings, please add those to the survey, as well.)
- Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art by James Nestor. Goodreads says, “Drawing on thousands of years of medical texts and recent cutting-edge studies in pulmonology, psychology, biochemistry, and human physiology, Breath turns the conventional wisdom of what we thought we knew about our most basic biological function on its head. You will never breathe the same again.” Book is available on Amazon hard copy or Kindle.
- The Law of Divine Compensation: On Work, Money and Miracles by Marianne Williamson, Goodreads notes, “ A guru to anyone interested in spirituality, Williamson’s words ring with power and truth as she assures us that, with faith in God’s promise of prosperity for all, we need never fear the future.” Available on Amazon in paperback or Kindle.
- The Issue at Hand: Essays on Buddhist Mindfulness Practices by Gil Fronsdal. As noted by Goodreads, “An inspiring and very accessible compilation of essays and edited talks on the Buddhist practice of mindfulness. Gil brings the practice of mindfulness not only to formal meditation but to all the varying aspects of everyday life.” Free copies available online at www.insightmeditationcenter.org as PDF file and as individual chapters.
We look forward to seeing which book emerges as our September selection!
