The Tao that can be spoken is not the eternal Tao
The name that can be named is not the eternal name
The nameless is the origin of Heaven and Earth
The named is the mother of Myriad things
~ Translation by Derek Lin
I have long been a seeker of truth and meaning. I studied Fine Arts while in college, but I found ways to integrate the deeper seeking into my studies, designing my own independent studies in Art History~ “Zen and Art” , “Hinduism and Art”, “Ancient Meso-American Art History”. My studies did not end after College. They only intensified. As the practice of Yoga and Meditation wove its way deeper and deeper into my life, the lines between Art and Truth Seeking only blurred. All of Life has become an artistic expression of this great seeking. The many forms of the divine are everywhere. I am reminded of the many interpretations of the Tao Te Ching, by Lao Tzu- which repeatedly bring up the “Myriad Things”. From the one, comes the many…
We are told that the world began with a bang… a big one.
But that it arose from a Singularity. One point. And from that One came the entire universe. There are certainly a myriad of “things” in the entirety of the universe. All around us, and even within us, exists the original source, that singularity. It is not separate. We are not separate from that moment. It is funny, quite humorous actually, to seek for the answers outside. We are the very origin of the universe. All our answers are within.
Myriad Yoga points to this truth. Though there are many different forms, many bodies practicing yoga, many asanas to take shape, many paths and practices to engage in, they are all simply the expression of Oneness. I seek Unity. Myriad Yoga suggests that beneath the many forms, we are One body, living and breathing across galaxies of being.
Myriad Yoga takes form in Yoga Classes, Music, and Art take expression in the walls within. Myriad Yoga takes form in a Yoga Teacher Training Program, creating Myriad Teachers to share and spread the reach of this healing practice of yoga with myriad souls waiting to expand.
These are my offerings to you.
