 Because if we are the environment, then all we need to do is look around us and see how we treat ourselves and how we treat each other. - John Francis
John Francis·TED2008 took a vow of silence for 17 years and also stopped using motorized vehicles. He got two degrees and walked a lot of miles during this time. He tells his story and shares his beautiful wisdom in his TEDtalk.
There is a campaign underway to fill up best sellers lists with Black authors called #BlackoutBestsellerListreaders . Participate by buying books written by Black authors between now and 20 June.
I just finished Eloquent Rage by Brittney Cooper and it was like being back in my favorite college lecture. She delves into the intersection between racism and feminism in a way that made so many light bulbs go off for me my brain felt like a Christmas tree. Currently listening to The New Jim Crow and also reading Fundamentals of Hawaiian Mysticism recommended by Kathy.
Next up is Love & Rage by Lama Rod Owens. “Love and Rage weaves the inimitable wisdom and lived experience of Lama Rod Owens with Buddhist philosophy, practical meditation exercises, mindfulness, tantra, pranayama, ancestor practices, energy work, and classical yoga.”
While we are not in the studio there are many ways to connect. Patreon, Youtube, Instagram, Zoom, Snail-mail. Here are the links .
