Phil Goldberg

How Yoga and Indian Philosophy Transformed America

From a few books two centuries ago to today’s world, with meditation apps and yoga studios on every city street, yogic teachings have seeped into millions of hearts and minds. People have turned to yoga for many reasons—from better health to spiritual illumination—but the collective result of this historic transmission has been a radical transformation of how we understand and experience life, the universe and ourselves. Join author-historian Phil Goldberg for a multimedia exploration of this remarkable history and the role we play in its unfoldment. With the help of photos and videos, we’ll meet the major figures who moved yoga from the fringes to the mainstream: gurus, swamis and yoga masters (Vivekananda, Yogananda, etc.); philosophers and scholars (e.g., Ralph Waldo Emerson, Aldous Huxley, Joseph Campbell); poets and novelists (Walt Whitman, Allen Ginsberg, J.D. Salinger); artists and musicians; physicists and psychologists; trendsetting Western yogis, and more. Special attention will be given to the Beatles, whose journey to India nearly 50 years ago was monumental, and the Baptiste family who pioneered yoga in the Bay Area and to the Mainstream of America. Every yoga teacher and practitioner is part of this Maha Lineage and will benefit from learning all about it.
