“We are independent beings who are living in an interdependent ecosystem. And, our choices affect everyone, and yet we can only do what we know to affect ourselves.”
*Spoiler Alert* There will be crude language and queef jokes in this episode. There will also be a whole lotta heart, wisdom and substance. I’m diving deep in this episode with my dear friend and yogi mermaid, Shannon Brasovan. In this interview, we explore what it means to live your yoga in ever-widening circles of impact – examining our personal lives as well as our capacity and impact in our communities and beyond to the global stage. As we follow that thread, we touch on a number of important and pertinent themes in this moment of our life and culture like understanding the karmic ripples of our choices, examining our privilege and complicity in racism, the gifts within our shadows, and the necessity of gratitude.
