Hear Our Voices! Building a Yoga Community of Inclusion, Support, and Action


The horrifying and deeply saddening stream of videos showing police killings of young black men and women, punctuated violently by the recent U.S. presidential election giving support to hate and separation, has been a wake-up call to many and a clear reminder of what we already knew to be the case for many others. It grows harder and harder not to feel a sense of urgency, questioning, frustration, and disorientation. It becomes difficult to ignore the fact that we are a society in need of radical change and healing.
So, can practicing yoga and meditation help us in times like these? Or is it just another way for people to ignore what is really going on by suggesting we can meditate our way to peace?
