Jeff, Milo, and I went down to San Marcos yesterday afternoon to practice kapotasana and things related to it. I woke up this morning still feeling a bit of backbend energy coursing through my body. We had a fun time and Christina and Kelly made a yummy mac and cheese for dinner.
I'm leaving for SPEP this afternoon. SPEP is the Society for Phenomenology and Existential Philosophy. It is a huge conference for all sorts of groups who do philosophy in ways other than analytical, let's say. Ancient Philosophy Society has a satellite session there and so I'm going in conjunction with my duties as co-director of that organization , more than for SPEP itself, though I really enjoyed SPEP in and of itself last year and it is part of my renewed effort to make sure I get to conferences and conversations with colleagues about philosophy done outside the dominant analytic tradition.
Also, it is in New Orleans as an added bonus. I"ll be back Saturday evening. Sunday I'm teaching in the teacher training for AYI. (I'm really looking forward to that).
Anyway, I've got the morning to practice, pack, and write a bit.
Here's the morning sutra study.
bhuvana-jñānam sūrye saṁyamāt
By samyama on the sun the yogi will have knowledge of the seven worlds, and of the seven cosmic centers in the body. (I)
By performing samyama on the sun arises knowledge of the different realms in the universe. (B)
here's the word study
bhuvana - regions
sūrye -on the sun
saṁyamāt -by samyama
