Each week we’ll explore a topic from the chapters of Julia Cameron’s book, The Vein of Gold. Circle members are asked to read and complete the chapter before coming to the group in order to participate in discussion. However, the facilitation allows for people to contribute even without having read the chapter. Plus, some topics are extended for longer than one week, so there is space to ebb and flow.

$50 discount to any woman who participate in the Vein of Cold circle who want to join Gigi Yogini’s Shakti Women’s Circle in October.

Veggie Juice – That’s Right.

That’s right, back by popular demand, fresh squeezed veggie juice is now available at the Literati Cafe.

The perfect drink for the summer.

We all know it’s good for you, and when mixed properly, it can be ridiculously delicious. Our resident yoga instructor, Gigi Yogini, suggests Spinach, Cucumber, Kale and Apple.

According the the USDA guidelines for Americans, less than a cup of vegetable juice is equivalent to a serving. Plus studies show that veggie juice reduces the risks of cardiovascular disease and cancer as well as reducing the risks of Alzheimer’s disease by 76%.

All the better reason to enjoy!
