I have a passion for science, data, numbers, facts, evidence, logic, well elaborated arguments, critical evaluation, order, and predictability. But I also love to be creative, intuitive, open, relaxed, compassionate, take care of my body and my mental health, and learn from other cultures and philosophies. I don't want to be so passionate about science and facts that I loose my sanity. This is what peaceful passion is about. Finding a balance between passion and drive on the one hand, and living a healthy, meaningful, and peaceful life on the other. Being driven without stress, feeling challenged without anxiety, being rational without blocking your emotions, doing what you love without losing yourself in the process. I do this by bridging science and yoga. And, despite what you may have thought when you read the company name, I do it in a down-to-earth way. So this is lesson one of many lessons in yoga and psychological science: what we see is colored by our expectations and judgements. We are all biased. So maybe yoga can be for you, even if you consider yourself to be a very rational, fact- based person.
