CHICAGO YOGA TEACHER ON OPRAH TODAY



Her name is Rachel Fiske, she does tantra yoga (still trying to figure out what that is*), and she sets "audacious intentions".... that actually bear fruit.

Read all about it here.

Jai ma!

*I'm currently reading Georg Feurstein's Tantra: The Path of Ecstasy. Apparently, the Dalai Lama is a tantra adept (did anyone else see "The Buddha" last night? Could it have been more beautiful / inspiring?), and it has next to nothing to do with sex.

  1. Hmm... her story about setting an outrageous intention is very inspiring...

  3. I should intend more audaciously, evidently. I had only the Maury Povich show in mind.

  4. I'm aiming for Howard Stern..

  5. The Buddha last night on PBS was very inspiring. I enjoyed it! I am interested in Tantra as a yoga practice; because I too don't fully grasp it.

  6. I'm gonna try reading Rachel's article again later. It actually seems right up my alley, but fot some reason, her use of the word Goddess (every fifth word it seemed) irritated me. I got it: You and all your female friends (and presumably every woman on the face of the earth) are powerful Goddesses. Uh oh...Pitta imbalance again? :-/

  7. Maybe copy & paste into word, and then do a find & replace to switch all instances of "goddess" to something like "bitch"? :)

  8. My mother used to refer to certain women as "bitch goddesses." Maybe that's the ticket.

    (She was actually quite like the Buddha herself, always advising moderation, and pointing out that "It's the simple pleasures, CK" that make it all worthwhile.

    You should have seen the family fun we had with two dollar store kites + 90 mph wind + duct tape on Sunday.....

  9. "two dollar store kites + 90 mph wind + duct tape" - Add spray paint, whipped cream, a camera and tripod to that equation and it'd be a perfect recipe for ConEd worker torturing!

  10. Thanks for making me laugh Boodiba and C.K :-)


    Of course it occured to me that the word irritated me for a reason and that I should pay attention...go deeper, you know?


    The bitch/bitch goddess substitution did the trick (as well as made me giggle).


    Bitch. Me like. I'm feeling that. Hear me roar!
