Pranamaya Yoga Celebration 17 December: yoga film Love and the Art of Giving and pre-Christmas tea
Join the Pranamaya Yoga Celebration on Saturday December 17, 3-5 pm at 1905 studio. Since Christmas is all about giving we chose a special movie for this December Yoga Celebration. We will spread out the cushions, put on the heater and serve tea and treats.
In November 2007 song writer & film maker Simon Eugene went off to India in search of renowned spiritual leader and Yoga guru Swami Satyananda, founder of the Bihar School of Yoga, to try to interview him for a documentary he was making on the subject of love. With Satyananda having long retreated into isolation, Simon was assured by most people that his task was an impossible one. But he managed to meet him and was then invited off on a magical tangent, to stay longer and film a record of an ancient, holy tantric festival that was about to take place in the ashram, The Sat Chandi Mahayajna.
The result is the beautiful and inspiring film Love and the Art of Giving, not just a personal journey into the subject of love but also an exploration into the higher aspects of yoga, catching one of India’s truly great and holy guru’s before his passing in the winter of 2009.
