I have spent most of my life in relationship with yoga. Much of it has been released as commentary on culture in text, blogs and articles.

Here for my third act I offer specific insight to enhance your experience of yourself through yoga. You will find fertilizer for your practice of asana, breath and meditation. I have thrown in recipes I created or altered for your pleasure as well as some of my artwork.

Please accept them as an offering and share them with acknowledgement of the author.
