Dear Friend,

So much exciting news to share with you this month! Over the last few years so many of you are enjoying incorporating travel to exotic places with your yogic learning and it delights us when you turn up to meet us and we love connecting you with other like minds!       

Jeffrey and I just returned from Chicago and Bloomington IL., where he and Stephen Knapp were honored to receive an award from SEWA International for their lifetime dedication to preserve, promote and perpetuate the Vedic Sanatan dharma, its wisdom, and traditions through out the world. Thank you for everyone who came out to the weekend events.

Over the next 6 weeks Jeffrey will have limited availability for charts so that he can complete the final edits on the "Bhagavad Gita Comes Alive" manuscript. We will be taking clients on Saturday only. Find out why this Gita is different?

...and then at the end of July: COSTA RICA! July 31 - Aug 6...with Saul David Raye. Registration for this retreat will be closing soon - please contact Saul's office asap. Details below.

There is also one more significant change in the web-posted schedule and that is that we have had to postpone the Bahamas this year as it conflicts with two important India conferences Jeffrey will be speaking at in December-right after the HAWAII retreat!  Hawaii in December -- now that sounds like a trip I won't be missing! 

If you wish to continue learning but can't travel as much as you might like to ---please take advantage of the huge library of Yoga Philosophy available on Jeffrey's website - much of it free or very reasonably priced. LEARN HERE
