Before Eastern, particularly Indian philosophical and religious concepts were popularized in the West, there were not many allowable options for how a person might recognize the connection between mind and body, or how one might meditate and get in touch with deeper aspects of self. But even though the real explosion of the popularity of Vedic concepts occurred in the 1960’s people like Ralph Waldo Emerson and Walt Whitman were way ahead of the game as they subscribed to some of these concepts. Today, we want to learn more about this shift in consciousness, and Philip Goldberg, author American Veda: How Indian Spirituality Changed the West, is going to tell us all about it. This shift has enlarged our understanding of mind and body and is still dramatically changing how we see ourselves. This show is going to open our consciousness yet further as we explore the slow steady move from East to West.
