YOGA AESTHETICS asks: How does consciousness interface with physical reality? How do our thoughts turn into things? Of course, as yet no one has definitive answers to these questions about the creative interface, yet more and more of us feel compelled to explore them. They are the essential questions that formed the basis of India's ancient yogic practices, preserved over time through the arts. Today, questions about the interface between consciousness and physical reality are at the heart of serious scientific debate. Julia Maxwell brings her background in classical Indian aesthetics together with a borrowed lens from science to explore ancient and new ideas about the creative interface. Between art and science Maxwell's playfield of ideas is rich with opportunities for deep fun. Part memoir, part guidebook, Yoga Aesthetics will energize your thinking and front-load your day with aesthetic force.
