Radiant Heart Workshops

Starting in September 2015, I am facilitating a series of study-group sessions where we will gather together to explore five unique Buddhist texts in translation and practice yoga and meditation exercises that will help us embody the philosophy of the text.  Learn the origins of awareness, breath as a tool in meditation, mindfulness and how to cultivate bliss and happiness through practice.  Each individual workshop is $35.  Here is a list of dates and topics, the assigned textbooks and required reading for each session:
