Yoga Beginnings: The Doshas

Yoga Beginnings: The Doshas

Throughout our body, there are many different energies that govern it. Everything from chakras, nadis, prana vayus and pranayama itself are strongly connected to our bodily health in every aspect physically, mentally, and spiritually. One of the strongest and most prevalent systems of energy and one that is directly derived from the five elements (ether, air, fire, water, and earth) is the dosha system simply known and referred to as the Doshas.

The Year of the Doctor: The Third Doctor

The Year of the Doctor: The Third Doctor

Before I begin, I had a couple of comments from readers on my Second Doctor entry that brought to my attention a factual error. I had written that Nicholas Briggs was the creator of the Daleks and trying to get a show off the ground for them at the time of ‘Evil of the Daleks’ when in reality it was Terry Nation.

The Criterion Reviews: “Monty Python’s Life of Brian” (1979)

The Criterion Reviews: “Monty Python’s Life of Brian” (1979)

Let’s move into something a little bit lighter for our next Criterion review. With all three of my past reviews being dark historical documentaries (“Night and Fog” / “Shoah”) or crazy horror (“House”), something a bit more fun and light-hearted was very much needed to offset the darkness of the past 3. And so I was shocked to discover one of the biggest surprises contained within the ranks of the Criterion collection: “Monty Python’s Life of Brian” (1979). Yes….I am dead…
