Lions Roar : March 2012
SHAMBHALA SUN MARCH 2012 63 October 2002 I CAN BARELY HEAR the voice of the newscaster over the whistle of the teakettle. It’s all white noise until a name jumps out from the chatter. Phil Stein, a prominent psychologist, has been murdered—stabbed by his wife—in the poolhouse of his mul- timillion-dollar home near San Francisco. I place one hand on the back of a chair and sit down at the kitchen table, fingers trembling around my teacup. Phil was the father of the boyfriend I had in high school, and I recall him telling us how as a young boy in Austria, he’d come face to face with “pure evil.” He’d dug deep holes in the earth and hid for days, shivering and shitting on himself as the Nazis routed out the Jews in his city. Throughout high school, my boyfriend and I modeled for Phil’s role-playing classes; we played a couple in conflict to teach people nonviolent communication. During that time, Phil had apparently been sleeping with his teenaged patient, just a few years older than us, and he eventually married her. Now this. I turn off the TV and try to go about my day, taking my son to school and managing affairs at my yoga studio. I try to focus on these tasks at hand, but I keep thinking about LEZA LOWITZ is the author of Yoga Poems: Lines to Unfold By and Yoga Heart: Lines on the Six Perfections.
