My friend, filmmaker & yogi , Arthur Klein, embarks on another chapter of his SADHANA ( spiritual practice ) as he heads off to Teacher Training with Bryan Kest in Maya Tulum , Mexico tomorrow. I've come to know Arthur as we worked together for the initial screening of YYoga @ Psalm Isadora & Aras B's MAHA Yoga Potluck.
Just like Arthur, I took another long & hard look at the world and myself after the events of 9-11. This led to an ongoing yogic journey with teachers-in-common Bryan K. and Ashley Turner, with COMMUNICATION on the practice ( via film or blog ) integral components of this sadhana. It was also great to hang out with him over sushi, sashimi & sake @ Chaya Venice before I escalated the road I am presently travelling on, i.e went vegetarian, or as my teacher best put it ,"got serious".
Arthur & Diamond Dallas Page will be rooming together in Maya Tulum, so I can already anticipate the intense intellectual discussions they will be having re Patanjali's Yoga Sutras.
Mark your calendars for another screening of YYoga in Santa Monica on Sept. 16th , as a reflection of the anniversary of the horrific event that happened on 9-11-2001. Dr. Christopher Key Chapple , the Head of Spiritual Studies at Loyola University will host this event with Jasmine Lieb & the Hill Street Center : www.hillstreetcenter.org.
