Bodyworker, Ashtangi, and writer for Elephant Journal, Thaddeus Haas, recently sat in a Brooklyn park with The Babarazzi’s very own lover of love, Aghori Babarazzi. It was sunny and warm and the conversation meandered through a variety of topics including:
- The scientific method
- Cultural imperialism
- And, being nice
From the interview:
“When you just sort of barf all over the market with cheap selling points, you don’t give the seeker an opportunity to even seek. That’s such an important part of it all. The climb. It’s like when a baby is born through the vagina, there is this wringing out process. The head, the whole thing gets wrung out. That’s the first “welcome to the world” experience. There’s a reason why there’s pain. There’s a reason why you forget that pain. Today, doctors would rather just pluck babies from the womb, circumventing that wringing out process.
That’s how cheap yoga marketing works. It turns the seeker into a consumer, constantly trying to pluck them out of the greater consumer base. Constantly shoveling down people’s throats this “you don’t have to do yoga in a cave” slogan. It’s like a psychosis!”
Read the rest here. Enjoy! We think Mr. Haas did a very fine job. Nice work, Haas!
