Love and Kindness in Your Practice with Rodney Yee
Listen to the Podcast
What role does kindness play in daily yoga practice? When it comes to Rodney Yee, quite a lot, as he tells host Colleen Saidman Yee in answer to a question from Jeremiah in Northampton, MA. You’ll hear Rodney draw on wisdom from spiritual teachers like Ram Dass, the poet Rumi and the Dalai Lama, who said “My religion is kindness.” Discover how the growth toward kindness, spurred by what Krishnamurti calls “choiceless awareness,” is a slow process, even for master teachers like Rodney and Colleen, and why Rodney doesn't think of time as a purely linear progression.
Moving from kindness to love, Sheila from Hawaii wants to know what role love plays in Rodney’s practice and teachings, which leads Rodney and Colleen into a discussion about love and conflict. You’ll find out why Rodney feels like he’s not qualified to describe love: “Does a fish describe the ocean?” Luckily for us, he doesn’t stop there, helping us understand how conflict is merely a “subset of love.”
