Science is everything. Or is it? Yoga is.

Posted by in Blog

How on earth is it possible to know what is true, and what isn’t? I suspect impossible. On earth, anyway. Earth is only one tiny planet, the universe is… well, we don’t know how large, or even, for that matter (pun intended) what the “facts” are. So for me it makes 100% sense to not dismiss […]
