In memory of our nephew, Sgt. Jack Taft Hennessy, we remember all the men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.  With gratitude for your kindness and generosity, I thank you for helping to support our local programs.  Yoga, meditation and mindful resilience have been proven to help those coping with post traumatic stress.  Always honor, never forget.  ~ Anne Taft

ABOUT Light a Candle 2020

As Memorial Day approaches, it is time to pause, take a breath and consider the true meaning of this holiday. Memorial Day is to remember those Americans who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. We recognize their service which led to the freedoms that we all enjoy today.

The ritual of lighting a candle in remembrance of a life passed has long been a part of our culture.  Keeping a light burning acknowledges that the memory still lives on and burns bright in our hearts. It is a ritual that promotes reflection and signifies a perpetual remembrance.

We would like to invite you to participate in Light A Candle, by making a dedication to honor those who have served. This year we are partnering with to bring our community a unique experience of being able to light a virtual candle for their personal intention.

Your gift will go directly to support recovery and resilience among our veterans, families, and communities. These programs include more than 350 free Mindful Resilience yoga classes each month, 3.5 hours of live online practices each day during the COVID crisis, 200-hour yoga teacher training for veterans and active-duty, and our new online Mindful Resilience for Compassion Fatigue e-course.  

Thank you for honoring and/or praying for those you love, remember, or grieve through “Light-A-Candle."
