Petri’s Workshop

Most of you all know we have a workshop with Petri Räisänen in two weeks time, Friday December 1st to Sunday December 3rd. Many of you have already registered, however if you you still need to you can register for the workshop here.

If you are enrolled in one or more mysore sessions be on the lookout for an email from me Tuesday or Wednesday before the workshop on how we will organize.

See you all soon,


Fund-raiser for UndocuFund, Nov 12

Tapestry Suppers is organizing a fund-raiser next Sunday, Nov 12 for fire relief. Proceeds from the event benefit Undocufund, a disaster relief fund dedicated to helping the undocumented victims of the recent fires recover and rebuild their lives. An estimated 28,000 undocumented immigrants live and work in Sonoma County. They work in the farms and vineyards, clean the hotels, work in restaurant kitchens, build homes and provide childcare, among many other roles. Unlike other victims of the fires they don’t qualify for federal aid and are in need of all the help they can get.

This will be a potluck lunch held at Karen’s house on W Dana Street. We have a full list of potluck contributors at the moment so you can join us by purchasing a ticket on Eventbrite. Besides the food (and Stu’s chai on tap) we are holding a raffle where you stand to win prizes like a 2-week subscription to Sun Basket’s Classic Menu meal plan, tickets to catch TheaterWorks’ 2018 production, Finks, and delicious Fall/Winter produce from Fifth Crow Farm, among many others.  Check out the full list of raffle prizes and buy a ticket here.

Come join us for a fun meal for a good cause!

Petri’s Book Nadi Sodhana (intermediate series)

Most of you have probably noticed Petri is teaching a workshop at YIY the first weekend of December. The workshop coincides with the release of his book on the Intermediate Series. He will not bring copies, they are quite heavy in bulk, so I just wanted to warm folks in advance, if you want a copy you can find one on amazon, they aren’t on Prime, so you might need to get it sooner rather than later if you want it for the workshop. Happy Reading, and I can assure you this workshop is one that will be worth it.



Walk With Me the Film

Walk With Me, a film about mindfulness, Thich Nhat Hanh, and the monks and nuns of Plum Village. Visit their website for more details.

The film is being released through Theatrical On Demand which requires a host for each screening and a certain number of tickets be reserved before a screening is confirmed. I am going to a screening at the Aquarius in Palo Alto on October 26th at 7:30. It is a confirmed screening and there are still tickets available as of this post. If you are interested you can reserve tickets here. If you cannot make the screening on the 26th check the Walk With Me website for the other screenings in the area.

If you have any questions leave a comment or contact me directly.

I hope to see you there!
