Divine Alchemy: How Yoga and America Are Changing Each Other
Thursday, January 24, 2013
Description:
The arrival of Yoga in America, especially through the influence of Swami Vivekananda and Paramahansa Yogananda, profoundly impacted the way we experience religion and spirituality in the West. Once considered a mysterious and esoteric practice suitable to only a few, yoga and meditation are now embraced by millions every day for everything from stress relief to a path of enlightenment. Phil Goldberg, author of the book America Veda, which includes extensive research on this subject, joins Yogacharya O’Brian to take a fascinating look at how practices in the West are also influencing the way yoga is taught and experienced. Discover some fascinating and important questions about tradition that are arising as a result of these changes.
