Sitting among the extraordinary body of exhibited work, famed photographer Michael O’Neill shares his connection to yoga following medical complications that left his arm paralyzed. His curiosity toward yoga led him on a journey around the world to capture the essence of yoga. His most powerful work is an exploration of the origins and essence of yoga and Eastern spiritual practice through an ongoing series of portraits titled, On Yoga, The Architecture of Peace. This Satsangh gathering with host, Deepak Chopra, unfolds the yogic relationships, the meaning of the word itself, the history of yoga, and what yoga does for our mind and bodies.

In time the work he produced in his adopted genre of portraiture received acclaim equal to that in his previous life as an advertising and commercial artist.
