Elisabeth Rochat de la Vallee Program in Petaluma

Elisabeth Rochat de la Vallee with be doing a special two-part program in Petaluma at the end of the month!

The two-part program consists of an afternoon session on Monday April 30th and a morning session on May 1st. The first session will be "The Way of the Feminine and Suppleness within the Daodejing." Then, instead of our normal study group meeting, she is going to do a special session looking at the key chapters of the Daodejing discussed, with a character by character analysis. The ideal would be to attend both sessions if possible.

Dates and times are:
Monday April 30th from 3pm to 6pm: "The Way of the Feminine and Suppleness within the Daodejing"
Tuesday May 1st from 9am to 12 noon: "Character by character discussion and analysis of the key chapters presented"

The cost of the programs is $45 for one session ($40 for members) or $80 for both sessions ($75 for members). 

This is a fantastic opportunity to spend time with Elisabeth here in Petaluma. Elisabeth is an internationally renowned scholar and translator of classical Chinese medical and philosophical texts.  Elisabeth has been a major influence on my practice and philosophy - before I met her in San Francisco I seriously considered traveling to Europe to study with her. Now, here she is in Petaluma again! 

Last time we sold out ahead of time and I have already had people contacting me for this next presentation, so please contact me at (707) 763-8040 if you are interested in this great opportunity.
