Yoga Journal just sent out this conference update that features photos and these FREE download-able MP3’s of several of the Estes Park 2008 events including:
- Panel Discussion with Tantric Scholars with Douglas Brooks, Sally Kempton, and Bill Mahony. Moderated by John Friend. An entertaining and informative hour plus discussion;
- Anusara Gathering Morning Meditation with Bill Mahony;
- Panel Discussion: “Handle With Care: Ahimsa in Asana” with John Friend, Judith Hanson Lasater, Aadil Palkhivala, and Rod Stryker; I attended this discussion and enjoyed hearing the difference in perspectives from these leaders, especially in the area of assisting students.
- The Yoga of Money lecture by Brent Kessel, financial planner and 20-year veteran of Ashtanga yoga;
- Ganesha & Other Stories: Symbolisms of Hindu and Buddhist Deities with Dr. Manoj Chalam; Indian-born Manoj is a scientist with a Ph.D. from Cornell University. He has compiled a book on Hindu/Buddhist Symbolisms and presents workshops on Symbolisms and Vedanta at retreats of John Friend’s Anusara Yoga, Deepak Chopra, Sivananda Ashram Teacher Trainings and other yoga studios.
