Project Description

The Pentagon

June 8, 2012 – I had the delight of joining 93-year-old yoga master Tao Porchon-Lynch as she taught yoga at the Pentagon. As I’ve done many times before, I moderated a “Conversation with a Master” discussion on her colorful life. Much thanks to the entire team at the Pentagon Athletic Center for hosting us. They presented Tao with a necklace with special mala beads – each one of the 108 beads was contributed by one of the participants and/or supporters of the event. They also gave Tao a picture of the Pentagon signed by each of the participants. I am also grateful to Shizuko for assisting Tao and Lori for orchestrating a wonderful gathering at her home.
