August 14, 2019 – Historical icon, yoga master and award-winning author Tao Porchon-Lynch turned 101 on August 13, 2019 and as usual birthday calls and notes came in from around the world. Most notable was a surprise message from Emmy and Golden Globe-winning actress and icon Angie Dickinson wishing Tao “a very Happy 101st Birthday.” Angie’s most popular work included Rio Grande, Big Bad Mama, Police Woman and Dressed To Kill. At 87 years old, Angie remains an inspiration so it was a delight to get well wishes from her for Tao. It underscores the Law of Attraction: good energy attracts good energy!

July 15, 2016–I was delighted to make another cameo in a news piece with 97-year-old yoga master Tao Porchon-Lynch, this time with ABC News online. For the last few years, as I was co-authoring Tao’s autobiography, I’ve traveled with her moderating conversations and assisting in yoga workshops. The pictures in this news piece are from our time in Jamaica as we were finishing Dancing Light.
With warm waters, fresh fruits, friendly people and (nearly) perfect weather, the island of Jamaica is a slice of paradise. That was the setting for our writing retreat for 96-year-old Tao Porchon-Lynch’s upcoming inspirational memoir, Dancing Light: The Spiritual Side of Being Through the Eyes of a Modern Yoga Master. Check out the pictures from the December trip and then join Tao for a retreat in Jamaica from May 4th – 10th!!
