I found out about this yoga retreat through a MindHub
posting (from Randy Fresno):
"A couple of weeks ago, I met two tabla players who had come to town
from the Berkeley and Los Angeles areas. These two had individually
toured Europe and been trained by some of the world's BEST players.
They had come to Fresno to perform at a FREE Sahaja Yoga meditation
meeting on the Fresno State campus where the number of people in
attendance was LESS THAN TWENTY.

100% world class.
As we talked about the low attendance, a girl within an earshot (who

I was pleasantly surprised when one of the players answered, (with a

The organizers are hosting several more FREE meditation meetings,
including one at Yosemite National Park on July 19th. The price for
the Yosemite gig -- a WHOLE WHOPPING $21!
TWENTY-ONE DOLLARS for a meditation trip to Yosemite?! How can I not

Tell anyone and EVERYONE that you know who might be interested in
this sort of event. FREE parking on campus, no tickets are given out
on the weekends, park in ANY LOT. No parking permit necessary.
Furthermore, the event is FREE! "
