This Friday – the Where is My Guru Show will air live from Mountain Pose Festival at Copper Mountain where we will interview Elephant Journal’s founder, Waylon Lewis (haha! Other side of the mic there buddy!) and Bob Weisenberg, Yoga Editor for Elephant Journal.  They will be meeting for the first time in the flesh.  After hundreds (or maybe thousands…) of emails, facebook comments and re-tweets, two of the most influential individuals in Mindful Modern Media will come together to share their vision for Elephant and the world at large.  Leave your questions for them here and we will do our best to ask them.  Listen to the show LIVE from 9am-10am MST.

In the Beginning… There Was Bob

One of three images of Bob Weisenberg floating around on the internet. (not after this weekend!) Photo:

Well, to be accurate in the history of Elephant; in the beginning, there was Waylon (and after the world ends as we know it, Waylon and his dog Redford will still be there climbing up through the destruction, eager to lead the new revolution on bike).

But, if we are talking straight years here (sorry Bob….) – In the beginning, there was Bob.  I can remember when I first started reading Elephant online, there always seemed to be this person who beat me to every great article and left a comment… Bob Weisenberg.  Even to this day, the guy still beats me at replying to the emails I send to him. He is the real deal. ANYONE who plays the Flamenco guitar (in my book) has learned to strike some authentic cords within. (and btw – Bob will be showing off his Flamenco skills at Mountain Pose – check out the schedule for more amazing classes, teachers and more Bob!)

Bob and his 87 year-old dad gettin' their warrior on!

Bob goes from mindful viral commenter to blogger, to mentor, to Yoga Editor for Elephant Journal and becomes listed in the Top 25 of Most Influential “Yoga” people to follow on Twitter, according to  I mean, I told ya he was quick. The man can herd cats.

Waylon at Hanuman Festival with just a few of his friends...

Then we have Waylon – whom we all know and love.  The guy is pretty f’ing smart and he f’ing cares.  Period.  From print to to cyber mag – the man is kicking mindful ass and taking names.  Together, these two guys, egos aside, are shaping a new paradigm for media, and the cool thing is they have invited all of us along for the ride!

We want to hear from you!

Join us this Friday on Where is My Guru where both Bob and Waylon will share their passions, visions and the most challenging aspects of running one of the most successful sites of all time while in a long distance relationships. Give us a call! We want to hear from you!- or leave your questions and comments here: no holds barred.

  11. Yogini5 says:

    I think I know where. From Which begs the question: Why does he consider himself a Recovering Yogi?
    What in the commercial yoga world, to be specific, is Bob Weisenberg recovering from?

    [Those satsangs could be brutal? They want you to take their yoga classes, too?]

    Inquiring minds want to know.

  12. SriDTMc says:

    hahaha tanya those last two comments are the most hilarious and endearing tribute to Bob possible.

  13. Yogini5 says:

    Great show!

    There was an infomercial about Street Yoga at the appointed time, and I thought I was in the wrong place (interesting and quite informative, btw) but I persisted in listening.

    This was from my job, but I heard most everything.

    Waylon: "[People] Mistaking elephantjournal for a yoga blog" …

    Yes, a yoga blog – if written by a BRAIN TRUST 🙂

  14. Good question, Yogini5.

    I don't consider myself either recovering or a yogi. I just like the people, their site, and the shirt.

  15. Thank you so much, Yogini5 – so appreciate you tuning in! Thanks for hanging in there. Getting Bob, Waylon and myself in harnesses and then on a crane to the top of a 400 ft climbing wall was the cause for the delay. Pics with archive will be up today.
