In a fully functional organism, an emotion has a very short life span. It is like a momentary ripple or wave on the surface of your Being. When you are not in your body, however, an emotion can survive inside you for days or weeks, or join with other emotions of a similar frequency that have merged and become the pain-body, a parasite that can live inside you for years, feed on your energy, lead to physical illness, and make your life miserable.
—  Eckhart Tolle

Let’s take a step back and acknowledge that Yoga is the prime example of cultural appropriation intersecting with capitalism to produce a stripped down and consumer-centric version of something that was – and is – originally held intimate to a specific group of people (Indians). Yoga’s defamation in the West has disseminated so extensively that it’s almost been successfully extracted from its roots and made into something completely different- something more stylish, up-and-coming, and for the wealthy who want healthy (or for those who try to replicate that). Yoga hasn’t just been taken from Indians by white people, it’s been taken by white people and then distributed, according to their terms, to everyone else. Such an unfortunate loss.

The way to practice without having any goal is to limit your activity, or to be concentrated on what you are doing in this moment. Instead of having some particular object in mind, you should limit your activity. When your mind is wandering about elsewhere you have no chance to express yourself. But if you limit your activity to what you can do just now, in this moment, then you can express fully your true nature, which is the universal Buddha nature. This is our way.
—  Shunryu Suzuki

Let Me Feed You 🌿

Quinoa Tempeh Wraps with tri-color quinoa, kale, parsley, cilantro, pan-fried tempeh and fresh avocado on a whole wheat wrap from @rudisorganic

I made these wraps for participants who attended the new moon gathering this past Saturday that was facilitated by my beautiful friends over at @purplelotusmassageandwellness If you’re in the Los Angeles area I highly recommend you reach out to both Michael & Marisa who own Purple Lotus Massage and Wellness. They are both licensed massage therapists and practicing yoga instructors. I have received several massages from many different therapists and both Michael and Marisa are the best I’ve ever had. They are true healers. And honestly, they are so much fun to be around. Peace & blessings.
