YogaforCynics, I value your input here!
Thanks for taking time to offer words of response here. I'm all for equality. ...just don't see that we are there at this point.
Thanks for the info. I might have some seaweed chips, too.
Thanks for your informative comment, MikeG!
Thanks for sharing you thoughts! It means so much! I think that women might be used to giving agency of their vaginas and uteri to husbands and medical professionals, and we need to take action to break the cycle of giving away our power! The government cannot make these personal choices for female-bodied people: no!
Thanks, I'm glad that you like this article! It sounds like you don't think that yoga can ride the wave of capitalistic attention, and at the same time it is monetary support that has helped to fuel a veritable explosion of yogic interest. So I think it might be complicated, and I have hope that minds and actions can be applied in ways that can help. That's why I wrote this!
Thank you! I'm glad that you like it!
Thanks, Carlos! I wish it was required reading for people involved in yoga. Our yoga might be so much better, and the attendant relationships so much more consciously lived. It can just be so easy to love the "love" without healthy discernment or sucked into the seduction of ones own adoration, if my stumbling path can serve as an example.
Thanks, Robbie! 'The Guru Papers' definitely helped to define power mechanics that previously just "didn't feel right." It's amazing how much defining something can speed healing.
