Even ordinary people like us with hang-ups and confusion have this mind of enlightenment called bodhichitta. An analogy for bodhichitta is the rawness of a broken heart. This is our link with all those who have ever loved. This genuine heart of sadness can teach us great compassion. It can humble us when we are arrogant and soften us when we are unkind. It awakens us when we prefer to sleep and pierces through our indifference. This continual ache of the heart broken open is a blessing that when accepted fully can be shared with all.
This weekend while paddle boarding with my mother and her sweetheart on Fish River in Lower Alabama, dolphins appeared and swam beside us. It was an extraordinary blessing and reminder that all sentient beings are essentially bonded to and by
Nature, Spirit, and Love.
In their honor I did a variation of dolphin pose on my board.
In the exhibit hall there are 3 walls, 30 feet high spanning 200 feet of projection space. The film is 12ish minutes from start to finish. Xavier de Richemont is the creator of this light-paint-montage-collage-theatre masterpiece. Tomorrow, Saturday, January 19, at 11:15am I am teaching a yoga class in the exhibit hall as the film runs for the duration of the yoga class. The experience is as much or more about observing the film-art and allowing the thoughts it provokes, while moving our bodies mindfully and breathing more consciously becomes the background. All levels are welcome and encouraged. Be inspired and moved by art. Experience yoga as never before.
This is the exhibit’s international debut and will soon be moving on. Don’t miss the opportunity to experience it.
Check out this video clip of the film. The 2-d clip is very good but the comparison to the full space is immeasurable.
