Humanitou: Conversations of Humanness + Creativity
07: Jessica Patterson, writer and teacher, on the spiritual practice of yoga, identity, language, and hope in a time of despair
In this episode of the Humanitou Podcast, Jessica Patterson shares some intensely shaping experiences in her life and where her feral spirit comes from. We talk about yoga as a homonym, how the word, while it looks and sounds the same in its uses, conjures different meanings for different people and leads to common misperceptions. We talk about how we construct identities and realities through language, and the essential value of taking a reverent pause. And we explore how to hold a perspective of hope and not to get swallowed up in this challenging season of despair. More at humanitou.com.
