Yoga Book Club

Welcome to the @LizaLaird Twitter #YogaBookClub.

Join the @LizaLaird Twitter followers in reading and discussing a book that explores topics in Eastern thought. Whether you practice yoga or are curious about books that cover topics on spirituality, philosophy, and psychology join us for the Twitter chat.

During the month we will periodically post on Twitter letting followers know where we are in the book and what we think so far. We will be positing questions about the book and encourage you to share your thoughts and comments as well.

Be sure you use #YogaBookClub when you tweet.

If you have a suggestion for a #YogaBookClub you’d like picked for a future book club, send us a DM at @LizaLaird.

We will start the fall with Remember, Be Here Now by Ram Dass, a book on spirituality and meditation. The book is full of large print and psychedelic drawings that suck you in and bring you through a journey from Harvard to India and back.

Come enjoy interesting dialogue, inspiring people, a little wine, and a relaxing afternoon!

In April we will be reading Life of Pi by Yann Martel. Life of Pi is a fascinating story about survival, belief, animal behavior, hope and hopelessness. Pi is a 16-year-old boy who is struggling to survive in a very tough environment. We follow his story through a seven month long journey over the Pacific Ocean, a boy and a tiger in a lifeboat.

Come enjoy interesting dialogue, inspiring people, and a relaxing Sunday afternoon.

February is a short month so the next Book Club in March. We will be reading Wherever You Go, There You Are by Jon Kabat-Zinn. This book goes deeply into the practice of meditation for its own sake, and the importance of it bringing about a state of “mindfulness” and a condition of “being” rather than “doing”. Kabat-Zinn looks at meditation as a workout for your consciousness. The author presents meditation in ways that make meditation appealing and make learning meditation easy – but beware practicing it is not.

Come enjoy interesting dialogue, inspiring people, and a relaxing Sunday afternoon.
