Kirtan with Shubalananda

Shubalananda Saraswati (Larry Kopp) is bringing kirtan to The Buttonwood Tree. He has been performing kirtan, a form of yoga, for many years.

Both the practice and his band have become extremely popular.

Poetry Potluck

Poetry Potluck is an opportunity for people who enjoy poetry to get together to share and discuss their favorite works. It isn’t an open mike.
