Sometimes the weight of life can seem heavy. You can either be crushed by it or learn how to carry the load. In the fall of 2016, I was traveling non-stop for my work with yoga master Tao Porchon-Lynch. At now almost 100 years old, she shows us how to live with vitality regardless of age. Dancing Light, the book we co-wrote (along with my mom Janie Sykes-Kennedy) won ten awards, and then Tao and I were featured in Athleta’s Power of She campaign. It’s been an exciting time. However, I’ve been experiencing a very strange dichotomy. In between amplifying Tao’s light, I have been fighting extreme darkness in the sunny state of Florida.
On Thursday, July 9th, 2015, I had the honor of interviewing Mahatma Gandhi’s grandson, 81-year-old Arun Gandhi, alongside my dear teacher 96-year-old Tao Porchon-Lynch. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience to be in the presence of two people who had first-hand experiences with the “great soul”, Mohandas Gandhi. Both Arun and Tao have a philosophical lineage that is similar–influenced by Swami Vivekananda, Sri Aurobindo and Mohandas Gandhi. Yet, they grew up in very different environments.
On Tuesday, March 24, 2015, 96-year-old Yoga Master Tao Porchon-Lynch went to Paulsboro, NJ and did an interview with 93-year-old Suzanne Roberts for Seeking Solutions with Suzanne - a nationally broadcast daily and weekly information / entertainment show targeted to an older adult audience. Check back for the air date. Afterwards, Teresa Kay-Aba Kennedy interviewed Suzanne and Tao together for Tao’s documentary, There Is Nothing You Cannot Do. Much thanks to our cinematographer, Eu-nah Lee for spending the (very long) day with us.
