Saturday Evening, 7/19, 7-9pm

Karma, Sex and Shiva: The Philosophical Structure of Tantra

     As we clamber through Tantra’s jangle of holy books, karma, sex and Shiva rear up again and again, shaping a probing question: what are we going to do with the gift of life in this brief spell on Earth? Exploit it for pleasure (kama), or wisdom (jnana), or both?

.
     This riddle drives the mad creativity of India’s self-transformation practices, and it shapes Tantra and yoga in particularly dramatic ways.

.
     In this image-driven lecture, you will learn where yoga’s wild wisdom is rooted. You will meet both the modern and ancient soul of the tradition of Tantra.


 

Session 4: Lecture & Images

Sunday, 5:30 – 8:30pm, 7/20

Getting Fresh with Ganesh: Everything you Always Wanted to Know about the Elephant-Headed God

,

     Ganesh: Fat, elephantine, garlanded with jewels: is he your mama?

.
     He sure acts the part: removing your obstacles, granting boons, inspiring muses.

.
     Where did this dude come from?

.
     Ganesh is the tubby, elephant-headed son of Shiva, master of money, King of Fate. He’s loveable and awful and finds himself being stacked on your mantlepiece because he’s so cuddly, likeable and weird.

.
      In this talk we tell his myth: how he came to be associated with obstacles, ganas (spirits), art, and rupees—and the low, low chakra: muladhara.

.
     Parvati’s son, made from dirt and honored everywhere.

.
     Come learn the history of Ganesh.
