Symposia Community Events –March 2020 

510 Washington St, Hoboken 

“I still love books. Nothing a computer can do can compare to a book. You can’t really put a book on the Internet. Three companies have offered to put books by me on the Net, and I said, ‘If you can make something that has a nice jacket, nice paper with that nice smell, then we’ll talk.’ All the computer can give you is a manuscript. People don’t want to read manuscripts. They want to read books. Books smell good. They look good. You can press it to your bosom. You can carry it in your pocket.” 
― Ray Bradbury, 
Fahrenheit 451

Free Yoga Class –   Tuesdays at 7 pm 

This is a fun and gentle practice, ideal for beginners or anyone in need of a good stress relief. While exploring conscious movement and breath, you will not only improve overall strength and flexibility but also calm the mind attuning it to the inner light of awareness. Surrender to your breath and allow your heart to radiate with truth and love. Move freely from a place of compassion and acceptance to create more peace and ease within in your practice and daily life. Rest your mind, rejuvenate your body and restore balance while feeling energized and transformed!

Free Yoga Nidra Class – Monday March 16th at 7 pm 

 Yoga nidra is the art of conscious relaxation. This practice is accessible to everyone, regardless of mobility—it is actually a form of guided meditation, and it’s a great alternative for anyone who gets antsy trying to sit and “just breathe.” The magic of yoga nidra is that, by guiding you into a state between waking and sleep, it’s simultaneously soothing and empowering, relaxing the body and mind while opening the doors to deeper creativity and connection.    

 Suggested donation: $8 –  Instructor: Dawn Raffel.  –  For more info, contact Dawn at 

 Dawn completed  200  hour teacher training at the Bhakti Center and an additional 50-hour certification in yoga nidra with Yogi Charu. She is a longtime Hoboken resident.
