Yoga & the "Not Knowing" Mind

Dearest yogis and yoginis,

I was fortunate to attend this year’s Yoga Journal conference in San Francisco, where I enrolled in their teacher’s continuing education track and listened to master teachers and scholars. While much of the information was a repetition of something I had learned before, it was wonderful to revisit it with fresh eyes. In fact, one of the presenters was Frank Jude Boccio, who talked to us about using the Buddha’s teachings to make yoga practice a moving meditation; what resonated with me was his explaining that if we approach our practice as if for the first time (he called it using the “not knowing” mind), we will continue learning more about ourselves in each practice… Taking that same approach to our other relationships and we will be constantly surprised and curious about our partners and loved ones. What a wonderful way to be! I hope it inspires you as much as it did me. If you are interested, here is Frank’s website:
