Rising 2014: A Yogic Healing Arts Retreat
April 11-13, 2014 at Harbin Hot Springs
Spring is an auspicious time for beginnings, the return of light and blossom. Come! Shake off the cloak of winter in a forested retreat. Breathe, move, soak, hike, think. Be nourished. Unfold your wings and prepare your body and spirit to rise into spring.
Rising convenes April 11-13. For this, the thirteenth annual Rising retreat, we will return to the grounds of Harbin Hot Springs. Our classes will meet in the Meadow Building and we will have full access to Harbin's hot pool, warm pools, cold plunge, sauna, hiking trails, and more.
The retreat cost includes all classes, meals, indoor/outdoor camping, and Harbin access. If you have questions about the retreat in general or health concerns in regard to yoga, feel free to email Kristie, or call 415 863 1821. The cost of the retreat is $375.

Monday night drop-in class - Important News
The 66 Sanchez studio, where I have been teaching on Mondays for over a dozen years, is closed this winter for some fantastic renovations: new heating and electrical systems, seismic retrofitting, better soundproofing, and an ADA-compliant bathroom. Sounds fantastic! The work is planned to take something like 6 months and began on October 14.
During this time, we will meet at Kristie's home studio in the Castro at 254 Hartford Street. This space fits 6 people, so there will be two sessions: 6:45-8p and 8:15-9:30p.
You can book your place for Monday classes at my Schedulicity site.
For this to work, folks must use the spaces they have reserved. Please book when you intend to come, and come to the places you have booked. I look forward to seeing you at Home.

Why and How We Practice
Once a psychiatrist asked Suzuki Roshi about consciousness.
"I know nothing about it," Suzuki said. "I just try to teach my students how to hear the birds sing."
