Yesterday I was told I wasn’t allowed to ask why my community wasn’t able to speak about voting on a Facebook page. Then I was rudely messaged by a woman who sent the ‘rules’ from her group. She would rather talk about tacos and nachos, because we are “bombarded with politics every day ”
What a first World problem, where your privilege and ignorance shows through.
Have the uncomfortable discussions, talk to your neighbors, understand each other. If we as adults continue to ignore big issues, our children suffer from our lack of action. As a yoga teacher to adults and children and as an activist and community member, I ask that we treat our neighbors with kindness and respect with everyone’s right to speak freely.
Everyone may not agree with what you say, but you still have the right to say it, without being censored by anyone who would rather ignore reality.
The Sunrise looks so much brighter today. The world is changing for the better. We’ve made huge strides. Love and Life won in many ways. I feel more positive then I have in the last 2 years.
The discussion of politics needs to be had. We need to understand each other’s point of view. Sweeping any political conversation under the rug is sweeping our democracy under the rug.
Don’t talk about non issues and fluff, talk about the real stuff, the truth, have the uncomfortable conversation, learn.
Stare truth in the face and learn from it.

The worries we have in this world due to Gun Violence has to come to a stop.
We are proud to stand with All Yogi’s throughout the World and not let fear stop us from practicing and keeping ourselves healthy. Please join us at Gypsy Tribe to create Expansiveness of Yogic Energy, to help heal some of more trying situations.
We are not safe anywhere with this administration and it’s policies of “we don’t care if you’re not old and a white man”. I am sickened. Our lives are at stake. Now me as a yoga teacher, has to worry about someone shooting up my studio.
If you choose to vote for a trump Republican, we don’t have much else to say. I bid adieu to all my trump followers, as I fight to make our world safe.
VOTE BLUE (YEAH YOU HEARD ME!) 🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊
#VOTE #endgunviolence #bluewave
November 1 marks All Souls Day, a day to remember those family and friends who have passed. This is a great time of healing, as October 31 or Halloween is a time when veils between worlds can lift. This can help us manifest our goals and dreams by calling upon our ancestral strength, as these energies are at their strongest now.
This is an especially auspicious time in our history, because we are fighting that battle between good and evil, light and darkness, knowledge and ignorance, as celebrated in the Hindu Festival of Diwali.
Our Democracy is sitting on a sliver of hope, that many voters will go out and vote to help keep our country free. Our Democracy is sitting on the edge, waiting for those who don’t vote to understand the importance of this Right.
I cannot tell you which party to vote for, but I can tell you that these decisions will have even worse ramifications of complacency continues.
I wish you all the light and love that Diwali offers, and I hope we can come together as a country, and for the good of all.
The events occurring in our country lately have me thinking; I may be seeing things from the proper perspective, upside down.
No longer can we fight and choose sides. We now need to think with our hearts and learn to see the world through the eyes of an empath. Allow yourself to step into the shoes of those we have hurt the worst. We can’t begin to understand the true feelings of those of us who are left to feel powerless, but we can all understand how powerless can feel from our own perspective. We are all created equal, and we all deserve peace, dignity and happiness.
