Meditation Study Group at Transformational Acupuncture
It’s official, we start on Thursday, August 3, 2017 at 7 pm, and we will be working through a book that is making waves in the meditation world: The Mind Illuminated (by Culadasa, aka John Yates, Ph.D). This book and study group will be of interest to two types of people:
- Those who want to successfully start and/or deepen a serious meditation practice
- Those who want to use meditation as a path to spiritual awakening
…Of course, you can fit into both categories 🙂

Cool stuff that our clients are doing
Our client Julia runs her own company in DC doing catering and cooking classes with seasonal foods, called Julia’s Rooted Kitchen
. We originally met Julia at the Adams Morgan Farmers Market at the Licking Creek Farm stall (a great source for affordable, organic, local produce btw). Julia brings her love of local, seasonal and affordable to her work. Check out her blog for some cool recipes and reflections.
