When wild elephants are domesticated as babies, they are chained to a huge tree or to a thick iron stake driven deep into the ground.  This stake/tree is physically able to hold the young elephant, despite the elephant’s repeated attempts to pull free and escape...


Editor's Note: Yoga is a full-time life. Yoga happens beyond the yoga mat. It happens as you close your eyes at night, while you're driving, when you're interacting with others, when you're silently sitting with yourself. One of the ideas in yoga is to practice non-attachment. Not being stuck to a fear,anger, sadness, joy, excitement, expectation and so on. That takes you away from living in the present moment. Being tied down to your past fears and memories can also become debilitating and depressing. Don't allow yourself to be tied down to old beliefs like an elephant tied to a simple stake in the ground. He has the strength to easily pull free at any moment, but his mind keeps him bound. How about you? What's tying you down?

I loved the freedom of this expression and looking back I appreciate that this was an attempt to make sense of my world. I sought ways of bringing ‘other-worldly’ experiences into a concrete, tangible form...  

Editor's Note from Marie' Sakai: Julie Hoyle expresses in her article the depth of what it means to be in the moment of art and in the moment of listening to the 'divine hint' as she calls it where we can step beyond the criticism of the mind and into the heart of knowing the deepness of feeling at one with all there is. She ends her article by saying, "When I get my small self out of the way, I am able to become empty enough to create a vehicle to express the inexpressible and to give form to the formless." Beautiful and moving, her words and her painting, The Merging, speaks volumes to her practice through art, yoga, and her guidance of the deepness of spirit, the Divine Hint.


Arts & Art Therapy

from Ed and Deb Shapiro

We all know yoga has hit the U.S. big time as it pops up on T.V. ads and magazines everywhere, but it was still an unknown entity in the west when Ed trained in the late 1960s at the Bihar School of Yoga in India and became a Swami.
