Spiritual Circle of Life


 Sunday, May 18, 5  – 6:30 pm

 To celebrate and honor the women in our lives who have inspired, encouraged and guided us. Beginning with a brief yoga practice and meditation, followed by a sharing of recollections and conversation.

In this month of May, we honor our mother, the woman who gave us life. Since the mystical moment of physical birth, our spiritual being continues to be shaped by our mothers, and also by encounters and relationships with many women who come into our lives, perhaps for a pivotal moment or perhaps sharing our lives for an extended time. Through their actions, influence and sometimes simply by the power of their very being we grow and develop.  We may become kinder, stronger, more insightful, more patient, more giving, more confident, more independent; more fully who we were created to be.

Join us in the celebration of our spiritual guides as we affirm each of them and their impact on our lives. Bring a memento, recollection, photo or poem to use in our celebration. 
Cost: $10
Registration: at Northville or Livonia Yoga Centers
