Tantrik scholar and practitioner Christopher Wallis joins me for some seriously well researched yoga geekery and also to give an exercise for when you’re taking a dump. We talk immanence vs transcendence, define “tantra” as a life affirming type of yoga and explain classical tantra (vs neotantra), energy, body image, empowerment, spiritual snobbery, spiritual bypassing, radical self acceptance, Sanskrit’s uses and misuses, Mark Singleton and yoga history, how to say “namaste”, Sanskrit cognates, the yoga sutra, kundalini yoga, spiritual insecurity, Kashmir Shaivism, how to “tantraise” a postural yoga practice and tips for yogis, our mutual friend Jim Tarren and we end with a simple yet profound meditation pointer. Deep, wise and fun.
