2) leaves of life compilation out now to benefit world food programme and not on our watch

hey friends hope you're all well,

just wanted to let everyone know that I have a track on this amazing compilation of current folk artists and all the proceeds go to The World Food Programme and Not On Our Watch charities. it's called 'Leaves of Life' and i've posted some info and a link so you can find it and support this swell cause.

"Leaves of Life is the essential collection of songs by some of today’s most creative Indie
Folk musicians. This record brings together unique and contemporary artistic voices to create an evocative and stunning collaboration; with all proceeds from the sales of this
record going to benefit important relief programs in Africa, and other communities in great
need around the world.

Curated and produced by Buck Curran of the Alt-folk duo Arborea, Leaves of Life features 19
exclusive songs by artists Alela Diane, Devendra Banhart, Marissa Nadler and Black Hole
Infinity, Fern Knight, Shanti Curran (Arborea), Rio en Medio, Larkin Grimm, Mi and L’au,
Starless and Bible Black, Silver Summit, Micah Blue Smaldone, David Garland, Citay, Big Blood,
Mica Jones, Eric Carbonara, Ora Cogan, Cursillistas, and Magic Leaves…along with the beautiful
art work of musician Hanna Tuulikki. This project hopes to further inspire people around the
world to join in vital artistic and social efforts to make a better life for all of us."

i personally think it's one amazing group of musicians and songs and i enjoy the album alot.
hope you do too.

4) inversion yoga workshop w/ betty roi on sunday

Core Awakening in Inverted Poses
Sunday, June 28, 2009 9:30 AM-1:00 PM

This workshop is an opportunity for students who lack experience and confidence in practicing these essential poses to break through their resistances, and make friends with the world being upside down. The fundamentals will be covered, and more seasoned students can explore more challenging variations.

We will start the practice by examining how to access our internal power of steadfastness, stability and strength. From the deep connection to our core, optimal alignment and innate intelligence of the body will be established. A feeling of inner toning, openness and serenity will unfold, allowing us to savor the wonder of these poses.

Then we will explore headstand and shoulder stand, as well as forearm and full arm balance. Using props and modifications we will work on poses and actions which stabilize and strengthen the shoulder girdle and arms, and increase the mobility of the upper back while understanding how to align the neck and head in a safe, pain-free way.

Headstand and shoulder stand are the Father and Mother of all asanas. Regular practice of these two poses nourishes all the vital organs, strengthens the nervous system, and clears the mind, creating radiant well-being from the inside out. Inversions are an essential aspect of a balanced yoga practice. Not recommended for women on their menstrual cycle.

Where: Yoga du Soleil located at 224 Divisadero St.
Cost: $75 Pre-registration call Betty at 415-861-3055
