Love Serve Meditate Realize

Monday, Aug 03, 2015 Uganda Slideshow with Kerry Morris

 

Uganda Flora

Kerry Morris is a student at Param Yoga who has a deep love of nature and animals. Recently, she took a life-changing trip to Uganda and wants to offer the members of our community an opportunity to share in her experience:

All my life I’ve dreamed of visiting Africa to see this special and spectacular country. I’ve always wanted to see mountain gorillas up close, in their own habitat. In June, I finally went to Uganda, in Eastern Africa, and my lifelong dream became a reality!

With much encouragement from my sangha at Param Yoga – especially from Marydale – I went through over 3,000 photos and videos taken during my trip and created a slideshow to share with you.

Gorillas in the MidstI am excited to share this with you and hope that you’ll see and feel how special this place truly is. Rich in biodiversity, ranging from swamp to grassland to near-tropical woodland forests, the flora and fauna are magnificent! You’ll see lions, elephants, monkeys, and, of course, mountain gorillas from two gorilla treks in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest.

Oh, and since this was a bird-watching trip, you’ll see some birds too.

I hope you’ll join us!

Kerry’s slideshow will take place at Param Yoga on Friday, August 14th from 7:00 – 8:30 pm. This event is by donation and promises to be a fun and educational experience, so bring a friend and spend the night with your Param Yoga community.

 

*UPDATE – Due to popular demand, Kerry will be presenting an encore of her Uganda talk and slideshow at Param Yoga on Friday, September 25th at 7:00 pm. Kerry has a wealth of information about Uganda, its people, and the native flora and fauna, including the spectacular mountain gorillas. Her presentation was fascinating and eye-opening to those of us who had the privilege of seeing it the first time, so if you missed it, be sure to join us for this special screening. As before, this event is by donation and no registration is necessary.

 


Saturday, Aug 01, 2015 A Message from Marydale – August 2015

 

August FloraDear Ones,

As you begin to understand the nature of life, it becomes more evident that learning to have no attachment in the prakritti (material) world is an important discipline that will reap deep rewards for you in the areas of peace, contentment, non-suffering and clarity. Through the emancipation of one’s person, there is a vast knowing that there is nothing in this world to yearn for as you have attained the one inexhaustible treasure in the realm of the Divine.

Through the warm weeks of August may you deliberately turn up the heat on your daily practice by recognizing that it is the way into the greatest, most precious wealth you can possibly imagine.

See you at the Sangha.

In Service,
Marydale Signature
