At Sonoma Ashram we celebrated the New Year mostly in Silence, with a quiet ritual of release, a little chanting, and a lot of meditation.  We were graced by a clear night sky revealing the Moon and Venus in their full glory.  Babaji’s message to us for the year, is “Keep Lightness in Your Heart.”   May we all develop the capacity to hold that lightness, no matter what lies ahead. With love and respect, Rev. Lisa j Winston.
