April is a month for the study of Jnana Yoga, an path to realization that requires constant analysis, discrimination, reasoning, and unrelenting devotion to your goal. Your aim is liberation, freedom from all limitation.
Vedanta’s scriptures and teachers tell us that life’s misery — its pain, anxiety, and sense of imprisonment — is caused by seeing inaccurately, due to “maya.” As a jnana yogi, you may break through that framework of delusion and see only Brahman everywhere, in everything and everyone, including yourself. This is realization!Michelle Fletchall is a student from our class in Athens. In this talk she tells us about her life-changing Near Death Experience, and answers questions from the congregation. This is the first time Michelle has spoken about her experience publicly; her talk is spontaneous, unrehearsed.
On Sunday, May 7, we continue this discussion and explore the relevance of NDEs to your spiritual journey.

Michelle Fletchall is a holistic nutritionist and hatha yoga instructor in Athens, Georgia. She is forever amazed by the health and happiness we find when body and mind live together as one. Her inspirations are Greg, her patient, wonderful husband and Sibby, her beautiful 22-year old black cat who brings true persistence to life every day.
