KARMA YOGA: The Dharma of Works
June 28, 2016
Hosted by Terry Canady and Thom Schumacher
Karma Yoga. There are many different forms of yoga. Some are familiar to us, such as hatha, iyengar, bikram, vinyasa, kundalini and agni. Karma yoga, however, may not be quite so familiar. Essentially, karma yoga is the yoga of ‘works.’ In this case, ‘works’ refers to our actions or deeds that lead to the balancing of our karma. Since we know that the balancing of every ‘jot and tittle’ of our karma is required by cosmic law, the practice of karma yoga is basically the formula for leading a life consecrated to the Will of God. This means leading a life focused on the Christ consciousness within each of us personally, as well as exalting the Christ consciousness in our fellow man. When our thoughts, words and deeds are concentrated on the highest good of all and in all, then our works are pleasing in the sight of God. Plus, by following a dedicated practice of karma yoga in our lives, we inspire others by example, which helps us to further accelerate the balancing of our karma.

Terry Canady and Thom Schumacher
Terry Canady, singer/songwriter, was raised in Des Moines, Iowa, and his performing and recording career has spanned nearly five decades. Recording a #1 hit record, “Mama Bear,” in Nashville, Tennessee in the early 1970s was the highlight of his career and eventually led to the creation of his own record and publishing company, Saint Adrian, through which he has produced a number of records and albums, most recently a patriotic CD titled “Give Me Liberty.” He continues to accept narration, commercial and voice-over work from his home in the beautiful Paradise Valley, just a few miles north of Yellowstone National Park.
Thom Schumacher is a copywriter, ex-seminarian, singer, percussionist, talker, plays a mean penny whistle, lyricist, RE broker and, most importantly, a student of the ascended masters. He has been gifted with an exceptional family, survived 3 marathons, navigated some very potent astrology (double Pisces!) and continuously juggles a myriad of creative challenges, not the least of which is hosting The OPEN DOOR. The threads that run through the crazy quilt of his life are love of God, Life, wife, family and gratitude for all the opportunities along the way to learn and grow.
