Westley Eckhardt maintains a multi-vocal interpretation of the spiritual traditions while honouring their uniqueness. His views can be provocative but they are always enlightening. Wes emphasizes the importance of understanding the Yoga tradition and respecting the plurality of its world views. The approach is therefore not dogmatic but pluralistic.
