The moon was full
and at its closest distance to the Earth
, making it a so-called "super moon":
and thirty-three percent brighter than
an average full moon. Also, t

between the Sun and Moon and the M

total lunar eclipse.
The last time this happened was in 1982,

September 21-25 was the first China International Yoga Industry Expo, organized by husband and wife team Yong Lu and TriYoga teacher YoLi. Since first meeting Kaliji, they have worked tirelessly to spread TriYoga throughout China, and have now realized their vision
to create a conference devoted to TriYoga! Nearly 200 participants from all over China and Taiwan joined together for five days of flows, vegan meals and satsang.
Dalian Opening Ceremony
The opening ceremony, attended by local government
officials, included a mudra flow from Yogini Kaliji
while the conference participants chanted OM.
Chairman Chen, of the Dalian Chamber of Commerce,
attended the opening ceremony as well as the first
last meal together. Chairman Chen said,
"Yoga is to bring heaven and earth together--
with you, we have real yoga."
Master Hsein Feng Chiu, a yoga philosopher renowned in Taiwan and China,
presented daily at the conference.
He has been teaching yoga philosophy for more than
24 years. Master Chiu also participated in the TriYoga
and was quick to appreciate the energetic
prana through every movement.
The program also included an outdoor morning
session at the
grand plaza along the Dalian waterfront.

The last night's dinner was traditional Chinese hot-pot: organizer Yong Lu said the meal represented the fire of
TriYoga, spreading across China and the world,
each "little sparkle" lighting up a new area.
Yogini Kaliji was assisted throughout the five-day conference by senior-level teachers Gina,

3 Months To Go!
On January 5, 1980, due to the grace of Kriyavati shakti,
TriYoga ~ a purna yoga for the benefit of others ~
began to awaken, to flow, to transform. AUM
In Sanskrit, Devi Yoga is another name for
Devi has three aspects or shaktis:
TriYoga is completing the third 12-year cycle on
, its Vedic Anniversary.
In one way,
or three ways, we can see an influence of these
shaktis in TriYoga over the last 36 years:)
Even though KRIYAVATI continues through today,
during the first 12 years I was in semi-seclusion and
was immersed daily in the spontaneous flow, as TriYoga
was being revealed. The Kali era provided opportunity
for cleansing and being trained/remembering within
ancient hatha yoga. Recall I never studied
with anyone. I was taught from this inner source.
It was the beginning of the Sarasvati cycle when
Mudra Vidya was channeled with over
1000 Devi mudras coming forth. It was also during these 12 jnana years that I wrote
the systematized Yogaflow and Prana Vidya manuals while training teachers with deeper knowledge to share TriYoga.
In the last 12 years, the Lakshmi era, it has been a time
of spreading the blessings of TriYoga in over 40 countries and opening 65 TriYoga Centers and Communities.
Ah, such blessings!
Wow! Writing this makes it obvious
This means we can now look
that the three 12-year cycles have reflected the three shaktis!

We will be celebrating the 36th Anniversary with
an amazing sacred-city pilgrimage during this
Journey to India.
I hope you can join! There will also be a celebration
at TriYoga Center Santa Cruz in January 2016.
May you tune into the flow of the universal trinity and
ride the Durga wave into the next era.
