All for the Lake!
The Grupo de los 33 invites everyone to join together, at the same time for one cause, to clean and heal the energy of Lake Chapala, Saturday, July 10, 3:33 p.m.
Says the group: “Lakes, rivers, trees, plants ... nature in general, are beings, they are not separate from humans, they are part of us. They are located in specific points with a specific purpose to establish the balance in our space at a micro level and at a global/macro level connected to the planetary web.”
Lake Chapala is part of the net of 33 Lakes on Earth that form the Kundalini of the Planet, according to the group’s literature.
To take part, “go to a preferred area at the lake or at a distance from home at the indicated time and during 33 minutes be in prayer or meditation, send thoughts and/or visualizations of clearing, smiles, joy, love, connection, gratitude, colors, light … do a ritual and/or offering to the lake, or clean a spot at the lake if you are there physically.”
Anthony Bogart presents “Yoga for Stress Relief” at Open Circle, Sunday, July 11, 10:30 a.m. at the Lake Chapala Society.
Bogart will speak about applying the techniques of traditional spiritual discipline in a practical manner to deal with the negative effects of stress in the modern context. He will offer simple ideas you can start to use immediately.
Bogart began practicing Hatha Yoga in 1972 after fracturing a cervical vertebrae in a surfing accident. Yoga seemed to give some relief from pain and rebuild strength. He practiced for 17 years before teaching his first class. Over the next 30 years, Bogart opened three yoga centers in Colorado and became a teacher trainer. He traveled to seven countries and gave workshops coast to coast in the United States. He is the author of “Moving Toward Health and Freedom,” a guide to the practice of Hatha Yoga.
• Ana Moreno presents Holy Mole! July 28, 1 to 3 p.m. on the South Campus Patio.
The word mole comes from Nahuatl mulli, which means salsa. The first mention of the mole can be found in Bernardino de Sahagún’s “Historia General de las Cosas de la Nueva España,” where he mentions what pre-Hispanic food preparation was like. This dish was an offer to the gods and also to entertain in celebrations. During the colonial era the arrival of new ingredients and habits turned mole into what Mexicans today enjoy. Learn about the origins of mole and how to prepare three types of mole.
• Moreno offers another class, Aguas Frescas, July 30, noon to 1:30 p.m.
