Who Am I?

139Over the past twenty plus years of practice, I’ve had the great honor and privilege of being part of a number of extraordinary yoga communities. Each with their distinct view of the practice. Each with unique teachers sharing their talents and insights. All feeding into and defining who I am today.

Alan Watts says we are a symptom of the earth, the earth is a symptom of the solar system, the solar system is a symptom of the galaxy, and so forth. That is to say something that indicates the existence of something else. We move in relation to one another. We lock together. And just as the earth is a symptom of our solar system, I am a symptom of all the communities I have been and continue to be a part.Continue reading “Who Am I?”

A couple of weeks ago, a friend and I were chatting…in person. Face to face. Yes. It still happens.

April (and Beyond) Happenings!

meditationMarch took on a little different shape which included the search for a new apartment. Anyone who has done it in New York knows it’s a full-time job! I’m happy to say, after 29 years of living on the Isle of Man (a.k.a. Manhattan), I’ve found new digs in wilds of Brooklyn…and, quite frankly, I couldn’t be happier! The move itself was easy and smooth…and while the space is a bit smaller than Shala Dennis, things are falling into place nicely and I’m settling into my new home. But change begets change and life goes on…Continue reading “April (and Beyond) Happenings!”
