Special Sunday Morning Sitting Group with Larry Yang - Awakening Together: The Spiritual Practice of Inclusivity and Community

Oct 15 (Sun)
9:30am - 12:00pm
Santa Monica
Please join Trudy Goodman and Larry Yang for a special Sunday Morning Sitting Group. We will be celebrating the release of Larry's new book, "Awakening Together: The Spiritual Practice of Inclusivity and Community."

Larry Yang teaches meditation retreats nationally and has a special interest in creating access to the Dharma for diverse communities. Larry has practiced extensively for almost 30 years and ordained in Thailand under Ajahn Tong. He is one of the coordinating teachers of the Spirit Rock Teacher Training program. Larry was honored for his work in racial justice by being selected as the community's choice for Grand Marshal in the 2016 San Francisco LGBTIQ Pride Parade.

Larry's book, "Awakening Together: the Spiritual Practice of Inclusivity and Community", is scheduled for release in late October, 2017. Pre-release book copies will be available at the event and Larry will be signing books from 9:30am to 10:00am.

"Awakening Together combines the intimately personal, the Buddhist and universal into a loving, courageous, important work that will benefit all who read it. For anyone who longs to collaborate and create a just and inclusive community, Larry provides a brilliant guidebook."
 - Jack Kornfield, author of A Path With Heart

"I don't see how Awakening Together could be better. It is so wise, thoughtful, dedicated to our healthful growth, ease, and enlightenment through the Dharma that I know I will be reading it for years to come. Larry Yang seems to have thought of everything we will need as we venture bravely forward - through racism, prejudice, ignorance, and poor home training - into the free spiritual beings we were meant to be. Together." (Alice Walker, author of The Color Purple)
