YOGA The Secret of Life is a photo-documentary about the spiritual and physical journey of yoga. Through photographs and text this fine art book explores the personal experiences of 108 of today’s leading practitioners and how this ancient practice has transformed their mind, body, and spirit.
The photographs for the project are taken on glass plates using the wet collodion process, a photographic technique dating back to the 1850’s. With the use of a large format wooden camera and antique brass lens, glass plates are hand-coated to produce one-of-a-kind “ambrotype” images. The collodion process transports us to another place and time. When the light-sensitive chemicals absorb the sun’s ultraviolet rays, we enter a mysterious world where art and alchemy embrace. The photographs take on another dimension with the words that accompany them. The text provides an intimate and enlightening account of each yogi's personal journey. Beyond the physical postures, YOGA The Secret of Life delves deep into the purpose of our existence and how to live a happy and fulfilled life. It explores understanding who we truly are, why we are here, and what our ultimate purpose is on this planet.
Included are world renowned yogis Radhanath Swami, Sharon Gannon, David Life, Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa, Sri Dharma Mittra, Yogi Amrit Desai, Yogiraj Alan Finger, Shiva Rea, Yogarupa Rod Stryker, Seane Corn, Rodney Yee, Dana Flynn, Elena Brower, Krishna Das, and more.

How do we arrive at unbiased and well-informed opinions about issues? The process of critical thinking can guide us to better decisions in every day life. In the first of four sessions, we will examine and practice this method of clearer analysis. Using the film as a starting point, we will examine how critical thinking is applied to jury deliberations. Presented by Norm Isaacson, Valerie Lucznikowska and Roger Moss.
Twelve Angry Men (1957) Starring Henry Fonda and Jack Klugman. The defense and the prosecution have rested and the jury is filing into the jury room to decide if a young man is guilty or innocent of murdering his father. What begins as an open-and-shut case of murder soon becomes a detective story that presents a succession of clues creating doubt, and a mini-drama of each of the jurors' prejudices and preconceptions about the trial, the accused, and each other. 96 min.Location:AWPL Community RoomAge Group:Adult, Teen
