Spirituality in, Sexuality Out

Filed under: Uncategorized — Carly J Hallman @ 12:10 pm

Interesting article on Salon.com’s Broadsheet today. In New York, this season’s “in” product isn’t a product at all– it’s an outlook. And between self-help books, yoga classes, and life-coach sessions, it’s an outlook that will cost you a pretty penny.

Worth it?

Let’s compare money spent on spirituality to money spent on more traditional “in” products. I mean, realistically, a pair of heels (no matter how cute) are not going to snag a woman, say, her dream job or a picture-perfect relationship. But an encouraging mentor and a solid spiritual foundation could prove a step in the right direction…

So is spiritual style a solid investment? Maybe.

I just can’t envision models strutting the runways in yoga pants…

  1. Chogyam Trungpa actually wrote a whole book about this called “Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism.” It’s a classic and anybody interested in the intersection of spirituality & commerce (or anybody interested in questioning their own motivations on the spiritual search) should give it a skim, Buddhist or not.

    Also, yoga pants can be pretty hot.
