New Gita Series:
Catherine Ghosh’s premier article “Dynamic Participation In Your Daily Life” was a wonderful way to launch our new Gita Talk series, Yoga In The Gita. Braja Sorensen and Catherine alternate weekly postings, and Braja’s most recent covers renunciation as a path to love, in Give It Up!
Watch out for weekly updates on the series in its own window on elephant spirituality’s home page, in the ele-writers Series section.

The new window, Weekend Wisdom, is just that: some deeper, more reflective articles on the variety of wisdom-filled sources our ele-writers offer….enjoy!
MONDAY TO MIDWEEK:
A few Special Picks from Monday to Midweek: Buddhist meditation writer and teacher Ben Riggs shares the difference between authentic spirituality and its new-agey counterpart. Paul Dallaghan weighs in on being natural through practicing Shaucha, and Josh Schrei returns with the practice of knowing your own fruition. Read it all here.

You’ll find beautiful lotuses in the first window, Rumi’s key to love in the second, knockin’ on heaven’s door in the third, and the fourth, a gateway to wisdom. Curl up, get comfortable, and fill your heart and mind and soul with a little love and wisdom this weekend…and have a good one!
