Free lunch and lecture April 21: Multicultural Lindisfarne

Free Lecture & Lunch: Multicultural Lindisfarne by Doug Burger, Tues, April 21,12-1:30pm UMC 415. In 635, at the request of the fierce Anglo-Saxon King Oswald, the Irish monk, Aidan, began a Christian mission in Lindisfarne. He came with Celtic sensibilities to a Viking-like kingdom with its culture of battle loyalties. The interaction of these three “Christianities” perhaps provides an instructive example of the ways in which we might be influenced by our own culture in our religious understandings.

Yoga, Nature Cure and 'Perfect Health': The Purity of the Fluid Body in an Impure World

In this lecture, Joseph Alter, professor of Anthropology at the University of Pittsburgh, presents an answer to the question of why the practice of yoga postures and breaking exercises came to be understood within the framework of Nature Cure in modern India. The focus is on the correlation between purification and embodied perfection, and the way in which impurity is understood to be problematic for health, as well as for the development of transcendent consciousness.
