Deborah Willoughby, founder of Yoga International and president of the Himalayan Institute in Pennsylvania, gives listeners a wonderfully insightful lecture on media, information, and myth. In a modest, conversational style, Willoughby digs into the consequences of the fact that Americans get much of their information from television. Advocating more direct, community-based methods for finding out what's going on in the world, Willoughby uses personal anecdotes to illustrate the joys of being awake, conscious, and open to living in the present moment without media interference.
More than 30 world-renowned speakers joined the Himalayan Institute in Honesdale, Pennsylvania, for the Sacred Link Freedom From Fear conference. Topics ranging from personal growth to world affairs to sustainable ecology were presented and recorded live. This lecture is among those being offered.
Deborah Willoughby is president of the Himalayan Institute and the founding editor of Yoga International magazine. She served as a consultant to various federal agencies, including the Department of Justice and the Environmental Protection Agency.
