This is an internet meme that caught my attention. Mr. Hedges hits the nail on the head regarding the state of “Adharma” the Sanskrit term for the opposite of Dharma -Mercy, truth, austerity and cleanliness that we crave from the innermost core.There is remediation that’s possible.It’s going to require some spiritual work on an earthly plane and it’s not going to be easy but it will be worth it.Let’s talk about what that could look like modeled from a societal paradigm that you may not have heard of before: Varna Asrama Dharma. Intrigued? We gather Sunday February 23 at JivaMukti Yoga School NYC 841 Broadway off Union Square at 6PM. Tuition is $35. Cow Protection – it’s not what you may think it is.
The ongoing crisis in energy,repeated environmental disasters,inhumane treatment of everyone and every living thing is in the news constantly.War,prisons,factory farms, suppression of the truth – What is the basis for this and more importantly how can it be solved? My respected colleagues and friends at The Sane Energy Project inspired me to lead this workshop/discussion Sunday,February 23, 2014 at JivaMukti Yoga School.The Sane Energy Project is doing great work to connect the dots of the energy practices that undermine our health on a local,state to state and ultimately international scale.Therefore I have been inspired me to dust off and dig out this knowledge,this alternate perspective based on Sanatana Dharma of what a progressive society looks like,how it functions daily as a social body and what your role could be in it. An “off the mat” talk with the some real life examples,references materials and inspiration in what could be a dynamic series of discussions.Tuition is $35 and you can sign up by calling the lovely staff at JivaMukti Yoga School NYC at (212) 353-2014

Ekayani here. Lately I have been going to Nublu every Sunday to absorb the lessons by the late Butch Morris. His spirit lives there and has been captured on film in two wonderful documents of the Great Listener at work. The first filmed in 2007 at the Skopje Jazz Festival with the NuBlu Orchestra offers 3 sets of the most fascinating free style conduction and on the spot composition. The second film Black February, includes some performance and more importantly lets Butch speak for himself about the conclusions or need he arrived at to get the members the orchestra to really reconnect with themselves in sound very personally spontaneously while being put on the spot literally. Don’t Think. Feel. Hear Listen and Play with Others as in a All The Classcical Training You’ve Ever Had Leads to This and It Don’t Mean a Damn If You Can’t Be Present 1000%. Like the conductor in Disney’s Fantasia, Butch’s way was magical to witness. I love the way he runs the wand up and upside down,from right to left and left to right splitting open the conduction system for all to see,feel,hear. What will happen next? Nobody knows not the musicians not even the conductor. As one musician said Butch brought out the “New American Orchetra” and we’d look back on this time as a coming forth of revelatory music as jazz was before. I encourage lovers of music searching for a lesson in music with a thirst for BEING to catch these screenings while you can. 8PM is show time and what’s more it’s FREE. 44 Years of Butch’s Life Work if not more Free? Lord RUN to see these! The next question I have is can I buy copies? Amen.
