Second Sunday Circle: June

The Topic for June:
In Yoga, the spine is referred to metaphorically as meru danda. Mount Meru is the mythical 5-peaked mountain of Hindu, Jain, and Buddhist cosmology believed to be the center of the universe; danda means staff, like our upright spinal staff. The expression meru danda then implies our connection to the universe beyond and within our own physical embodiment.
In this exploration of myth and yoga we will look at this teaching on the spine and other stories that shine light on deeper understandings of yoga as a practice and process of awakening. All are welcome, no particular experience with yoga is necessary.
The Second Sunday Circle is a monthly gathering to explore diverse topics relating to spiritual perspective, path, and practice in an experiential and conversational format. Long time and brand new sol center friends are welcome.
