“Why this cult of speed?
Because we don’t know how to deal with our mortality.”
This quote from The Slow Revolution video is one of the main reasons why I believe people find it so hard to sit for meditation, for any amount of time. Even three minutes of stillness is interminable to many, including yoga teachers.
But they don’t know that’s the reason. Peel those onion layers away.
The realization that I am a freak — I like to think iconoclast — in the yoga scene in my area of far west suburban Chicago hit me on the head like a shovel last week. If you can’t label it and package it, then you can’t sell it. Simple. That’s Marketing 101.
Happy to be on the cutting edge of the slow yoga movement. My students and I are revolutionaries and have been for a long time now.
But the revolution will not be televised because it happens within.
