Getting a little juice into your practice

Summer, finally, has arrived — at least in Los Angeles.

And that means practices are getting hot. Even early morning ones are suddenly a lot sweatier.

What’s been strange is that the added heat and streams of sweat have made me notice the stiffness of my joints more than normal. Just when I’d think I’d be feeling, in Tim Miller’s words, “a little more juicy,” I’m feeling less so. Maybe I’m just quickly burning away the lubrication.

One way to cultivate that juiciness is by building up the bhav — pursuing a little extra bhakti.

So I’ve taken note that on Sunday, Ram Dass is having a webcast that focuses on his guru’s, Neem Karoli Baba, relationship to Hanuman. You can sign up (and submit questions) at this link. It takes place Sunday, 8 p.m. Eastern time in the U.S., 5 p.m. Pacific. A perfect way to wind down the weekend.
