Announcements for Sunday, January 6, 2019

There will be a 6-hour meditation with Kirtan on Saturday, January 12 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. to commemorate the birthday of our Paramahansa Yogananda.  Group Energization Exercises will be practiced at 9:40 a.m. prior to the meditation.  There will be a 30-minute break at 12:30 p.m. Please bring a fruit offering to place in the basket at the rear of the chapel prior to the meditation, to be taken as prasad at the conclusion of the meditation.

A note about the 2019 Saturday meditation schedule: As we’ve shared in recent newsletters, our 6-hour meditations in 2019 will start at 10 a.m., rather than 3 p.m. as was the case last year.  There will be a couple exceptions such as when Bro. Devananda leads kirtan meditation Feb 16 (held 9 a.m – Noon), and the Summer Solstice 6-hour June 22 (held 3 p.m – 9 p.m.).  Another small change for 6-hour meditations: we will practice Group Energization Exercises together at 9:40 a.m., and during the midway break 12:30 – 1 p.m. EE’s will be practiced individually. We hope this consistent Saturday schedule will be conducive to the most people possible being able to participate in our joyous group meditations.
