Over the past few years I’ve had a number of people ask if I hold any sort of weekly community gathering — not a yoga class, but a place where anyone could show up, drop within, and reconnect. Reconnect to their truth. Reconnect to their relationship with the Divine. Reconnect with their compassion for others and forgiveness for self. A place of non-denominational devotion. A place that feels like home.
Sit Around The Fire is my response to this request. Because let’s be real — going to temple together right now is impossible. So we do what we can — we cocreate our temple, from the hearth of our own homes. Join us for the first 11 Sundays of 2022, for a sacred 90 minute window back into yourself and your devotional practice. We will gather for heart-centered practices that strengthen our gratitude for life in all of its messiness, cultivate hope and resilience in dark times, reignite our inner inspiration, and focus on how we can stay steady within ourselves while walking through a world in chaos. Each week will be co-led by two teachers, guiding the community through a blend of mantra chanting, gentle movements, breathwork, meditation, and readings from sacred texts.
Though teachings will mostly be rooted in yoga philosophy, Hindu thought, and the teachings of bhakti, our goal is to offer a non-sectarian devotional community space for all to land in, as they are, and feel safe to share. The final 15 minutes of each session will be reserved for community conversation. Students are welcome to come with a favorite poem, a question that has been on their mind, a reflection from their week, or simply an open heart ready to listen and hold space for others.
All are welcome here.
