INVIVO is proud to introduce the INVIVO Yoga Book Club.
Join us to explore books together, interact and create meaningful discussions, and deepen your understanding of the yoga practice.
We gather to develop community (Satsang). All are welcome.
Our INVIVO Yoga Book Club is a free, one-hour event that meets every two weeks virtually on Zoom.
We will be reading a few chapters at a time during each meeting. You can attend the Yoga Book Club even if you don’t have a copy of the book.
Meetings will be facilitated by Heather Eiden using the Passage Meditation method. During each meeting, participants take turns reading out loud and discuss the reading. Then we part ways so that each person may meditate on their own.
Meet on Zoom
Our book club meets virtually, using Zoom video conferencing. If you are new to Zoom, you need a computer, smartphone, or tablet with a camera. Begin by going to the Zoom website or downloading the app. After you register, you will receive an email with a link to the meeting.
We recommend that you join the meeting 10 minutes early. Be sure you are seated in a comfortable space for conversation and meditation.
