Something Immensely Spacious

You are this vastness. This vista you see, this grandeur, this enduring strength — if you go deeply enough inside yourself, you will find not something small but something immensely spacious. This is the essence of the human spirit. This message…had an enormous influence in shaping what I came to see as the purpose of yoga — to reconnect to the original vastness and silence of the mind….This understanding of oneself [should] be not only an intellectual idea but a felt cellular experience in the body.
— Donna Farhi, from the introduction to Yoga Mind, Body & Spirit: A Return to Wholeness
