Greetings!

 

Feeling Spring and the awakening of community as the land wakes up from slumber. I just returned from a wonderful weekend of yoga, music, ritual and activism at Downward Dog studio in Toronto and am taking a moment to be on the land in upstate New York.  As I concentrate on some long term projects this summer (Voice of Change, books and albums),  I will only be teaching at a few of the summer festivals this year....so I hope to see you and sing with you at Hanuman festival in Boulder June 11-14 or at one of our Off The Mat Intensives (Squaw Valley July 20-24 or Omega Institute August 24-28).  

 

I recently launched the very first Voice of Change online training which has been an incredible deep conversation about expression, truthtelling and becoming an advocate for justice in the world.   This is a culmination of my life's work and I am excited about how it will evolve...stay tuned for the upcoming 6 month VOC Immersion and more VOC news.

 

Next up this month:  I will be doing a Bhakti kirtan concert after the debut screening of the film SOLD (about a girl sold into sex trafficking in India) at the Illuminate Film Festival in Sedona AZ.  The proceeds will go toward IREST yoga nidra trainings in India as well as earthquake relief in Nepal. Then onto San Clemente for a workshop at love.play.yoga. studio and then Yogaworks Teacher Training in LA.  

 

Also - I participated in the Awaken Your Core Fire free online seminar with some wonderful thinkers and change makers.  I highly recommend that you check out these inspirational interviews!  See below for the details.  

 

Also see below the two page interview from Mantra magazine (in stores now).  

 

Finally - the Wanderlust book is available and it is gorgeous....I have a short piece in the book about building community....love the community we are building!

 

Thats it for now....many blessings and hope to see you soon!

I long to hear her singing

 

i wake up to the voices that have been singing all night...haunting and lovely, they blend sound into light calling calling calling to God

 

but  i long to hear her singing the voices of the women

the voices of the girls  the sweet voice of the uncaged bird

 

she who has been beaten down over and over until there is a silence that goes beyond all that we know

 

i long to hear her voice calling out to  her desire 

calling out her immortal yearning 

i long to hear her singing yes i long to hear her singing

 

her voices buried so deep under centuries of the iron hand and i who come from freedom can barely understand what it would take to escape and to learn to speak again 


to believe that i could make a sound  that might be heard above the shouting voices above the ones who feel they have a right to sing all night to amplify their songs and send them to the heavens

 

I long to hear her prayers rising up into the night silences. i long to hear the voices of the women singing

 

-me

~~~~~~~~~~

If my life is a mythological tale

then my art is all around me waiting to be formed

my freedom is demanding that I keep my eyes open

my demons are protective dragons swirling in my home and my choices are doorways into potential realms...a sliding door moment with each breath

what will I choose next? 


if there is no tomorrow, so let me fly forth in this moment 

for there is not art born of a moderate soul

 

what if I spoke my truth

what if I raged against the way things are

not accepting them like a good girl

would I be too much for you then?

 

how wild is too wild?

how free is too free?

 

I long to be wild as the wild horses 

thundering and biting 

racing under an untamed moon

 

I long to be on fire with flames song

torching my tongue

my lips split open

 

I long to stand on the wildest mountain

with my arms flung wide 

fingers prying the heavens

 

I long to run through woods in the rain

dive into the rivers and 

be born in Her oceans again

 

I am naked as I write this

I stand in the cold truth of my flesh

Curves and scars and sacred breath

I trace my ribs my belly my neck

Coming home to myself 

 

Her mark...

Her mark is upon my skin

The broken open and the opening

Light is slowly trickling in

And a secret longing dares to begin

I tremble with immortal yearnings

 

-me
