Sometimes you need to take a minute to re-fill. • With ALL that’s going on you can’t run effectively on an empty tank. • Take some time to surround yourself with some positive images, take a breath... then get back to work!! • There is LOTS of work to be done out here. • Message to self today! #motivation #positivevibes #encouragement #keepgoing #changeiscoming #dothework #persistence #overcome #encourageyourself #mindset #newday #newweek #work

We should value ALL HUMAN LIFE. THAT IS WHAT ALL MY RELATIONS ASKS OF US. HOWEVER IN A WORLD THAT CENTRES EGO AND SUPREMACY BASED ON RACE. BEING IN RELATION FOR ONE ANOTHER HAS BECOME A COMPETITION AND VIEWD AS A CONFRONTATION. HOW CAN U ASSERT “ALL LIVES MATTER” IF YOU AND THE SYSTEMS YOU PRIVILEGE FROM ACTUALLY DON’T GIVE A @$!? ABOUT BLACK LIVES? OH YEAH, ALL LIVES MATTER IS THE  DA VINCI CODE FOR “WHITE LIVES MATTER TOO”, WHICH COOPTS, SILENCES, ERASES AND IS AN ACT OF LATERAL VIOLENCE...

After the mandatory 30 day break between Phase 1 and Phase 2- it’s back on the #LiveHard program! Phase 2 starts today with the additional incorporation of #30forthekids - A program designed to raise money for the nonprofit charity created by @mrfrisella where 100% of all proceeds raised go directly to help kids with food, medical, education, and daily needs. I am excited for the next step in my journey— and looking forward to creating/working my own plan! Here’s to Day 1!! 💃🏻

Whilst we’re in the climate of sharing and learning, although I don’t have a big following, this may be of interest to some pals: Here are some books I’ve found really insightful the past couple of years. A mix of fact and fiction that have opened my mind and helped me understand more about my own privilege and the systemic injustices of black people and prejudices they face daily.
.
.
.

I’ve just started Me and White Supremacy and will be doing the regular work that is encouraged by journaling (it’s a recommended 28 day exercise). If any of my friends have started and want to do this together, let me know - I’m keen to do better and learn alongside others.

•• WHITE ALLIES •• We need to do better. Right now!!! If you're sitting at home in silence, not sure how to go about this and feeling uncomfortable about what's going on in the world, this post is for you. Acknowledging privelage is hard. It is extremely uncomfortable. I get it. But they aren't going to listen to POC voices; they are going to listen to white ally voices. Full stop. We have a job to do, and this is step number one. If you don't know how to enter into these discussions, here are two books written for exactly that, and I've included another 2 books for Canadians specific to indigineous history and experiences that I think are super important. READ THESE BOOKS. Or Google (do NOT ask POC what they recomend, this is your job to do the footwork) books for white allies. It is not easy to recognize how we are part of the problem, but if anything is to change, we HAVE to acknowledge our part and change our thoughts and actions. We have lots of time this summer to get our shit together. Add these to your summer book list, and let's get busy! Also, sign the petitions, and donate if you can! #acknowledgeyourprivelage #dothework #geteducated #listenup #booklist #necessaryreading #whiteallybooklist #doyourpart #fuckracism #burntheinstitution #getangry #dobetter #silenceisnolongeracceptable

I think we have this misunderstanding about what healing and doing the work really is, that it’s all about diving into the wounds. 
It wasn’t until we did a unit on trauma in my somatic therapy training* several years ago that I fully understood what the process of doing the work really was. 
Before we sat with any trauma in practice sessions, we spent a day and a half of the three-day training just getting resourced. Getting resourced is a practice, and it means to fill up with a felt sense of whatever feels nourishing, like compassion, or love, or a favorite scene in nature, or dancing to a favorite song, or sitting with our strengths...things like this. We do this alone and in community. 
The other component of doing the work is developing a conscious understanding of a wounding moment; we bring our witness consciousness to the forefront by slowing down to understand the context, and to learn our relationship to it. *Only when we understand a wounding experience from a compassionate distance can we heal it.* This three-pronged approach to doing the work that I’ve been writing and thinking about for years applies to individuals and families and larger systems of people. I believe that it applies to the current turmoil happening now. 
We will heal it, and it is my belief that we will see meaningful change in our lifetimes. But we all (especially those of us new to these issues) need to understand it first to the best of our ability. We can create resource around it, the way a potter builds a bowl, creating the container for a compassionate space within us that we can extend outwards for our black brothers and sisters, who are hurting deeply right now. 
Lots more to say on all of this. Stay tuned, and sending extra metta/lovingkindness our this day. -Rebecca

It is so reaffirming to see & hear about more and more of my white & german friends stepping up to the challenge of understanding their white privilege. Choosing to move beyond the sympathy & shock of the recent news is where it’s at. It’s been heartbreaking. And I’ve cried many times. But this isn’t new and it is / has been happening even in the German context. Racial injustice & systemic racism is a thing. It’s gonna take every last one of us to commit to taking personal responsibility to continuously grow in that awareness. It’s like a breath of fresh air. Just to know that you’re up for educating yourself, reading a book, listening to a podcast, up for that protest /march, up for learning from another white friend who’s been on the journey for a bit longer than you have....And yes, it’s gonna be uncomfortable but you’re gonna have to get comfortable with being uncomfortable. Stay the path! Our World depends on it.

To all my fellow Kenyan friends & family, HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!!!!! How crazy is it to be planted in the same city where the African continent was divided like a cake amongst colonial representatives at the Berlin Konferenz in 1884? To now be standing here free but still dealing with the widespread  implications of structural racism is sorta kinda ironic... We’ve come a long way y’all. Let’s not waste it. Be about understanding the part we all play in switching it up for the next generation. The time for being apathetic is over people. Let’s get on with it!! If you’re still on the fence and silent, setz 👏🏾dich 👏🏾 damit 👏🏾 auseinander 👏🏾 let’s geddit!! To the allies that have always been there, I love you. I love you deeply 📷:@chancetheropa .

Feeling fit and energetic at 41! Made the decision to change, wish I had chosen this years ago. When proper nutrition and exercise come together the efforts are rewarded. Anyone can do this. All you have to do is choose it. #fit #change #exercisemotivation #getitdone #eathealthy #dothework #healthylifestyle #changeyourmindset

The repair work always starts within. Build your awareness; be willing to look at the things you may not want to acknowledge are there; cultivate a softness and gratitude towards it for showing you the truth and giving you an opportunity to expand.
•
Feel a deep, open connection with yourself... and you will surely feel a deeper connection with others. Notice how you can change and it will give you faith that others can change too. Put your awareness into action in your personal world everywhere you see an opportunity (there will be so many opportunities).
•
Small movements truly do create a big ripple effect. Always remember this is the foundation to create the change we are all so ready for. Start by looking inward and be ready to do the work on yourself. It’s surely easier to look out, point fingers, and say we’re blameless. But, we are all connected. We repair ourselves and we repair society - it cannot be delegated 🛠 So, let’s #dothework

Are you shooting in the dark?
. 
Unfortunately, traditional healthcare can often have us trying multiple things to eliminate your back pain...
. 
And when something doesn't work... Simply up the dosage or move onto the next thing.
. 
It's a prayer, and it's inefficient
.
What you possibly need right now, is a strategy
.
A proven formula
.
Tested, distilled and refined to get you predictable results.
.
Lucky for you I might have the formula you've been looking for.
.
Click the link in my bio and I'll give you the whole thing for free so you can see if it's the right match for you.

Enjoy!

The Reckoning claims American minds today. The next step is The Rumble. This is where we choose to go once we become aware. The Rumble is the messy middle we must navigate before we can Rise Strong. (Rising Strong by @brenebrown Brown). It is my privilege to choose to do the work of dismantling the systemic racism inherent in me, in no small part due to the subconscious messages received as a white child growing up in a covertly racist society in Texas. It’s painful to rumble with the messages I absorbed without consciously choosing them, despite believing black and brown people deserve the same privileges I take for granted. Freedom to exist in peace. 
I see the pain my “not a racist” stance causes. I believe the lived experience of people of color. I cannot imagine the anguish and the centuries of pain they endured. It is time, and past time, for this stop.

In this messy middle of rumbling to the covert dismantle racism within me, I will get it wrong, I will make mistakes, I will inadvertently cause more pain. I cannot let my fear stop me from doing the work. Call me out on it. Nope, I won’t like it. Call me out anyway. This is important work . . . for me, for my family, for our country . . . sure. But more importantly, it’s important for those disenfranchised by a system committed to keeping them unseen, unheard, unrecognized as equal.

Tell me who you follow in order to learn. Tell me whose work you are reading to deconstruct covert racism.

Repost from @theyogacarla 🌸 Join Carla at 8:30am for Meditation and 9am for All Levels class. Then join us this evening for more movement with Hilary at 5:30pm for Strong Vinyasa!
•
Sometimes it’s hard to tell what to do. Sometimes the directions don’t seem clear. Sometimes the external and internal cues seem to be at cross purposes.

Daily practice can help us sift through feelings, emotions, all form of sensation. The result is familiarity. A sense of knowing what was previously not known, conflicted, clouded.

What is the first step? There certainly are many approaches how about right now we go with willingness. A willingness to give it a minute, slow down, investigate, explore.

Reaction, reactiveness will inevitably disperse with this type of intentional scrutiny. As Robert Thurman told us once “everything dissolves under analysis.” That includes EVERYTHING.

Everything we know and don’t know about the workings of our minds our ignorances about how we hold up aspects of culture we actually do not want to hold up. If we take the time to involve ourselves in the work of dismantling our preprogrammed preconceived notions about ourselves, what seems like other, our culture then we all have a chance to recreate our society micro and macro to be an intentional expression of who we truly are. Who are we? Divine radiant beings blessed with this life (aborting to the yoga anyway). This moment is an opportunity of immeasurable proportions.

Let’s not squander it. Peoples lives depend on our willingness to wake up. #georgefloyd 
#dothework #blacklivesmatter 
Use your practice to get involved with what it is meant for, clear vision, seeing reality.
