Breathing Practices for Lung Strength
Thursday, September 24, 6-7pm (Eastern)
Zoom workshop with Meghan Maris
of Mama Priya Yoga
Supporting our lung health is critical as we approach the autumn of 2020. I’m partnering with yoga teacher Meghan Maris, of Mama Priya Yoga in Portland, Oregon to offer a Zoom session on how to breathe better. We’ll explore diaphragmatic breathing, equal breathing, and touch on lunar nostril/breathing. Meghan will also offer some of the theory, mythic elements and philosophy of the subtle body and pranayama—the breathing practices used in yoga practice.

Meinrad Craighead: Praying with Images
Thursday, October 22, 6-7pm (Eastern Time)
Zoom conversation with Amy Dosser
Executive Producer, Praying with Images
Several years ago, I had the good fortune to be involved with the production of the documentary Meinrad Craighead: Praying with Images (2009). Meinrad passed away in April 2019, in Albuquerque, New Mexico. You can learn more about Meinrad here; she was an important mentor to me, in art and life. When I learned that Praying with Images had recently been released digitally, I jumped at an opportunity to share Meinrad’s work again.
On Thursday, October 22, I’ll host a conversation with Amy Dosser, Executive Producer of Praying with Images. We’ll talk about Meinrad’s images and her writing, and her exceptional ability to hold sacred space for women. You’re invited to watch the documentary—which you can rent or buy in digital format here—ahead of time, and then join us in conversation. If you’d like to buy a DVD, you can do that here.
