Ahimsa is not a style of practice, but a foundational element of Yoga philosophy. Usually translated as “non-harming” or “gentleness,” Ahimsa will be the theme connecting a meditative yet challenging sequence of postures, designed to calm the mind through cultivation of a compassionate relationship to self and to other beings. "Gwen's Ahimsa class is just magical! Gwen's supportive and compassionate energy deeply holds us, as her teachings help us deepen our postures in ways that strengthen our cores, quiet our minds and open our hearts. Such a nurturing way to start the morning! " ~ Sherry Z, a student yogi Lokah Samastha Sukhino BhaVantu: "May all Beings everywhere know peace and freedom from suffering, and may the thoughts, the words and the actions of my life contribute to that peace and to that freedom." Gwen Murphy completed her 200 Hour Teacher Certification at Frog Pond Yoga Center in Princeton, Ma. With an emphasis on alignment and movement with breath, her classes center on the fundamentals of Classical Yoga, while allowing each participant to move at his or her own pace. Gwen is a long-time resident of West Acton.

Tai and Michael are opening their home again for the next vegan conversations. Hope you are able to join us! This month we will show a DVD, In Defense of Food by Michael Pollan with conversation to follow. The DVD will start at 6:15. About the DVD (length 2hrs ) : "Join best-selling author Michael Pollan (Food Rules, The Botany of Desire) on a fascinating journey to answer the question: What should I eat to be healthy? Cutting through confusion and busting myths and misconceptions, In Defense of Food shows how common sense and old-fashioned wisdom can help us rediscover the pleasures of eating and avoid the chronic diseases so often associated with the modern diet. " If you are able, please bring an appetizer to share. ***Please read Tai's message for parking and etc. : ) **** "Come to end of Fletcher Ct and drive straight back onto our gravel driveway. Driveway is 800 feet long coming down thru woods into big circle. Take circle to your left and park so others can get by you. Take brick walkway to your left and enter thru screen porch and come into glass door. Leave shoes and coats downstairs and come upstairs for the conversation. You may bring clean soled house slippers to wear if you like. We will provide some vegan appetizers and please bring your own drinks." [masked] Tai Cell
