So much happening in the world today as 2016 draws to a close.
I am moved by the words of Anne Cushman a yoga and mindfulness meditation instructor. "In the wake of last month's election, how do we take our practice of awakening beyond the mat and the meditation cushion and into wise and compassionate action? How do we stand up--with presence, clarity, and strength--for the many communities and ecosystems who are under assault? How do we nurture the courage and competencies to speak and act against racism, misogyny, ignorance, lies and greed--without burning out?
Alone, we may feel weak and overwhelmed. By taking action together--in touch with our profound interdependence and our deep love for the world--we tap into a power that can sustain us.
Here are a few resources from the world of dharma and yoga that can help you turn practice into action.
