Yoga on the Mountain a Benefit for the Center for Mindful Learning

My dharma friend, Soryu Forall, has founded the Center for Mindful Learning. “The Center for Mindful Learning (CML) is a non-profit organization devoted to improving lives and strengthening communities by offering mindfulness training that cultivates happiness, compassion, and success for the benefit of all people and all living things.”

Burlington, Vermont is and will be a stronger community as result of their efforts. They will be holding their third annual fund raiser “Yoga on the Mountain” on September 8. If you can’t make the event, consider making a donation on their website.

 Please join us as we practice mindfulness and yoga together on top of Mount Philo to benefit Center for Mindful Learning programs.  The proceeds raised will enable us to serve more individuals, schools, businesses, and community organizations that wish to bring relaxation and energy into their lives by learning mindfulness tools.

This year, 20% of our proceeds will go directly to New Sudan Jonglei Orphans Foundation (NSJOF), a non-profit dedicated to improving the future of orphaned children in the Jonglei state and surrounding areas in Sudan.  NSJOF provides funding for education, and educational services, for orphaned children in order to make them productive members and future leaders of their communities.
