97-year-old Yoga Master Tao Porchon-Lynch Receives Honor from Wainwright House

May 19, 2016– It was a perfect day for the Spring Luncheon at the beautiful Wainwright House in Rye, New York. 97-year-old yoga master Tao Porchon-Lynch was one of the honorees for their annual fundraising event and I was delighted to accompany her.

Wainwright House is the oldest non-profit, non-sectarian holistic learning center in the United States. Their mission is to inspire greater understanding through body, mind, spirit and community. Teachers have included Thomas Berry, Joan Borysenko, Rosalyn Bruyere, Ralph Bunche, Joseph Campbell, Deepak Chopra, Ram Dass, Mathew Fox, Michael Harner, Jean Houston, Aldous Huxley, Craig Junjulus, Dolores Krieger, Thomas Moore, Bernie Siegel, Sir Laurens Van Der Post, and Roger Woolger, to name but a few. Early supporters included Dwight Eisenhower, J.C. Penney, and John D. Rockefeller.

The environment at Wainwright House is simply divine. It has become one of my favorite places. We did some filming with Tao there and I moderated our popular Conversation with a Master event there last June. Thank you to Holly Galgano and the entire Wainwright Board of Directors.
