How does an oral tradition express itself in modernity? (intimately, over time). How does an ancient practice, traditionally handed down from mentor to student, find relevance in a post-modern society? (by changing your life). How do we find personal meaning in something so old and abstract and strange? (by connecting ourselves to the source, directly).
In both training settings and in the techniques sessions of Deeper Practice I try to teach the things alluded to but never arrived at in classes: chant, philosophy, the vocabulary and teachings of the sages, yogic psychology and subtle body awareness. These are direct routes to personal transformation. This is the stuff that actually works you over and leaves you wide open in wonder.
