“Mindfulness must be engaged. Once we see something needs to be done, we must take action. Seeing and acting go together. Otherwise, what is the use of seeing.” – Thich Nhat Hanh
The third of my three imperatives: ENGAGE
The work of our yoga practices teaches us to care for ourselves, experience the magic of the world, and compassionately engage with others. Each month, in partnership with Yogadana, I choose a charitable organisation to learn about and support through my workshops or classes. I invite you to learn more about the below and widen your field of compassion.
