This Sunday, after the summer break, the Sunday Satsang Sessions will resume. It's been over two months since we last met, so it will be interesting to hear what the summer has brought to everyone. 

One of the main Sunday Satsang themes over the past year has been The Four Stages of Life, with an emphasis on the Third Stage of Life, known as Vanaprastha, roughly from age 50 to age 75. In India it is known as the "Forest-Dweller Stage." In the West, it would approximate the time when one retires from a full-time job and pares down one's household duties.  When Swami Ritavan was here last July, he wanted people in The Meditation Center community to develop a more focused approach to their sadhanas, and to re-think Vanaprastha, not as an abstract idea, but as a spiritual aspiration to work towards, with practical, concrete steps. 

Following Swami Ritavan's recommendation, we will begin the fall sessions with some important aspects of Vanaprastha that can be done at any stage of life: decluttering, down-sizing and space-clearing.

How do these pertain to various levels of one's life and personality materially and psychologically?   What are the benefits of doing these things? What are some strategies about how to do them?
