August 2 - Beginning on August 2nd, Kris Grapes will give three consecutive presentations on the book Awake Where You Are: The Art of Embodied Awareness by Martin Aylward. Kris has chosen to go in-depth in discussing this book because it is rare to find a writer who focuses so intently on awareness of the body as a critical part of the meditative experience. As one reviewer states, "This book is more than a meditation guide - it's a guide to living an embodied life."

Upcoming schedule:
August 2: Kris Grapes--Martin Aylward. Awake Where You Are: The Art of Embodied Awareness I
August 9: Kris Grapes--Martin Aylward. Awake Where You Are: The Art of Embodied Awareness II
August 16: Kris Grapes--Martin Aylward. Awake Where You Are: The Art of Embodied Awareness III
August 23: Jay Ford--Judith Simmer-Brown on "The Four Noble Truths: A Buddhist Theology for Undoing Racism"
August 30: Karen Garrido--Lotus Bowl dialogues
