Week 3 of Next Chapter Book Blogging Group – The Joy Diet – Chapter 2 on Truth


Hi All,

Welcome to Week #3 of the Next Chapter Book Blogging Group – http://tnc-thejoydiet.blogspot.com.  Truth was the subject of Chapter 2 in Martha Beck’s wonderful book, The Joy Diet.  I am still marinating on the practice of truth. Yoga has been a big help.  So has mantra chanting satya (Sanskrit word for truth) and collage making.  I may come back to this post next week and share more reflections.  In the meantime, check out the video I made about my Chapter 2 adventures in the land of truth.

Enjoy your day and weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

Peace and Creativity,

Happy October!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. For more information, visit the National Breast Cancer Awareness web site: http://www.nbcam.org.

Click on the video below to learn about my Pink October Yoga free online classes on October 6. 13. 20, and 27 from 8:15 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. You can take the classes online at www.stickam.com/anandaleeke.

On October 24 and 25, I will teach yoga classes from 11:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. The classes are offered as a part of the second annual Frederica Leeke and Dorothy Gartin Breast Cancer Awareness Yoga Weekend. These events honor the breast cancer journey of my grandmothers Frederica Stanley Roberts Leeke (1915-1996) and Dorothy Mae Johnson Gartin (1912-current).

The classes will meet by the waterfall that faces the reflecting pool located at the 16th Street and Florida Avenue, NW entrance. Participants should dress comfortably, refrain from eating and drinking two hours before the class, and bring their own mats. Yoga mats will NOT be provided. If it rains, the class will not be held.

Enjoy your month!
