WE

November 24, 2017

“Starting with WE: if we take yoga to be conjunctive – psychologically, socially, politically, ecologically – its study and practice will be intersubjective. This would mean that it is not passed from a self-as-subject to an other-as-object, but understood by those sharing it that it comes alive because we recognize each other as subjects-in-relationship.”

Interdependence

“Awareness of interdependence is the fullest presence.”

Open-source yoga

November 17, 2017

“The yogi is a self-hacking Robin Hood. By strict cultural code, hackers share everything they learn. The discoveries of any individual must enrich the hive. And as they do, the individual expands, and her boundaries become more porous, and she craves yet more intersubjectivity. Yoga should in the end be completely open-source, where open-source is the medium of empathy, so that everyone can read the code, reflect each other’s creations, and alter it towards their novel applications.”
