Today, Adam’s talking with Jessica Patterson, a teacher, writer and yoga therapist … among other things.
She is the founder, owner and director of Root Center for Yoga & Sacred Studies in Colorado Springs, and continues to teach nationally and internationally, as well.
In this conversation, Jessica 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 identity through language, and how we create realities through our words rather than merely reflect our realities with what we think and say. We talk about the essential value of taking a reverent pause, and knowing the wisdom of stillness in action and action in stillness.
We talk about a lot of things, as typically happens in these conversations. And Jessica also helps Adam work through some pains in his life as he tries to make sense of a world gone mad, and tries to figure out how not to get swallowed up in despair, rather how to shift to and have faith in a perspective of hope.
And finally, as you listen to Jessica’s insights of humanness and creativity, Adam asks you to consider the question he usually put to listeners at the end of each episode: How are you living humanness and creativity in your life?
Here is Adam’s conversation with spiritual teacher and more Jessica Patterson.
