We are nearing the end of our 9 month journey into Anusara-land, as Anne would say. One more weekend together at the end of this month and we will have completed our 108 hours with Christina Sell. Just a couple of pix from our gathering last week. The photo of Christina was taken during our philosophy discussion and review of Carlos Pomeda’s DVD series, The Wisdom of Yoga. We were discussing how we integrate our understanding of philosophy by answering these three questions:
- The “What” ~ What is it we’re talking about?
- The “So what?” ~ Why do I care?
And finally …
- The “Now What?” ~ How do I implement this?
Now check out her groovy yoga pants. I studied the design from a distance, but wasn’t able to identify the graphics. So truthfully, I thought it was Scooby-Doo, and while not tied overtly to our tradition, Scooby is definitely a character of mythological proportions worthy of consideration. (Surely, you’ve all seen the bracelets: “What would Scooby Doo?”!) I asked Christina at the break what the design was & then promptly forgot. I think I preferred my own little “maya” and refused to take anything else in. Anyway I digress …

This next photo shows Ari’s fabulous new lotus tattoo. Ari takes so many wonderful photographs of others — and an occasional self-portrait, but I can’t imagine she gets to shoot her own tattoo, so here ya go, my friend! You’re beautiful!
In honor of Ms. Ari, I’ll end with the same words that Judith Lasater closes her workshop sessions with:
“May we live like the lotus, at home in the muddy water.”
Pammy – Doo
(Or as my Daddy always called me … Framma-Doo!)
