Weekly Group Meditation (weekly on Sundays at 4:00pm)
Many people are aware of yoga asanas (physcial postures). Traditional Yoga incorporates asanas as part of an overall approach. The yogi, Patanjali, taught about the eight limbs of yoga. While many read Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, few have been able to experience this dynamic approach. Today, we are more fortunate because Traditional Yoga is making a resurgence in Knoxville. Rooted in the eight limbs of yoga, the Path of Bliss, incorporates meditation and social service as part of an integrated approach to spirituality. Join us for collective meditation and experience the joy of Traditional Yoga.
 The Eight Limbs of Yoga are Yama, Niyama, Asanas, Pranayama, Pratyahara, Dharana, Dhyana, and Samadhi

Mindfulness in Recovery- past event
This introduction course was held June and July 2018 and helped people understand what mindfulness is, why it is important, and begin to establish a regular practice. This course did not focus on specific addictions or addictive behaviors. It is open to everyone. It is not a requirement to identify as a person in recovery. Some of the course topics include dealing with emotions, building a community (support network), and self care.
