Has 2020 sucked the Joy out of your Life?
Let the wisdom of two of the most joyful people on the planet help you find it again.

The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World is a book by the Nobel Peace Prize Laureates Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama, and Archbishop Desmond Tutu. They discuss the challenges of living a joyful life. Both of the authors faced oppression and exile and yet have been able to maintain their compassion and forgiveness despite this. The Book of Joy is a conversation between the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu about finding joy and happiness in the face of suffering and grief.

This four week Zoom series will focus on “The Eight Pillars of Joy” and “Joy Practices” as shared in this book. These teachings can provide the foundation for lasting happiness. The Eight Pillars of Joy are a set of positive qualities that can help us experience joy, not as a fleeting emotion, but as an enduring part of our lives.

Each session will start with a lecture by Mary Veal, followed by group discussion and time for questions. This course will be offered online via Zoom live interactive video conferencing. A reading schedule will be sent to you prior to week 1.

To register, send your payment via Venmo, Zelle or PayPal and include your email address. You will be sent the Zoom meeting invite prior to each session.

The quadratus lumborum (QL) muscle starts at the pelvis and runs up to the lowest rib. The QL muscle is one of the primary sources of lower back pain.  A common cause of QL pain is SITTING TOO LONG. Something we’ve all done a lot of in the last few months.

Symptoms of QL pain include tightness and discomfort in the lower back region. Lower back pain is often described as a deep aching pain. Although the discomfort often occurs at rest, it may become worse with movement. Walking, standing, and rolling over in bed may aggravate the pain.

Many studies have shown that Yoga is incredibly helpful in reducing the discomfort of ongoing low back pain. In this workshop, we will discuss the QL muscle, the causes of strain or fatigue and practice with a focus on poses that stretch and release the QL muscles.
