Ganesh Groups In Action
Over 1400 children in the Madison school district were identified as homeless last year. The aim of this Ganesh Group - Homelessness is to help us all move from compassionate thought to compassionate action. Our mission is to have a direct impact on the lives of homeless children and families in Dane County. We will achieve our goal by partnering with the highly respected and well established organization - The Road Home of Dane County. We will help them stop the cycle of homelessness and help families and children achieve self-determined goals and affordable, stable housing. We need your help to make this mission a success!
SRI SUKTA GANESH GROUP
Contact Group Leader Crystal Hansen
Humanity has endured cycles of prosperity and impoverishment, peace and darkness, ingenuity and stagnation, spirituality and science, for centuries. Where we are today in this process of growth and decline may be seen as we observe—both externally and internally—the qualities of fear, anger, sorrow, and greed, and their proportionate interplay with those of love, compassion, and joy.
Now is the perfect time for aspiring souls who believe in the power of collective consciousness—one that is positive, vibrant, and focused, and fills our consciousness with inner abundance and fulfillment—to take personal yoga practice to the next level.
Every Wednesday evening from 6-6:30pm there will be a Ganesh Group session open for EVERYONE to come and chant the Sri Sukta. No need to have it memorized, there will handouts and an experienced leader or a recording. People from all over the globe are reciting the Sri Sukta daily to encourage positive change within each individual and in our world. This practice will culminate in a final Rudra Yaga practice and ceremony in India February1-15, 2019 (ask for details if you are interested in this pilgrimage).
Come, chant and be part of the healing of this world.
