Today was a wrap for my 200 Hour Meditation Teacher Training at @sukhayogaaustin - it is always such a bittersweet feeling as you complete these special Teacher Trainings...bitter because it’s over and you don’t want it to be. You don’t want to leave the cozy womb of the learning space, your beautiful sangha that you’ve grown so close to over 7 months and you so enjoy the enrichment your soul receives from the ancient wisdom of the teachings that are being passed down to you every time you meet. ✨ But it is is sweet because as you close this chapter you are beginning a new one and while you become the teacher, you also always remain a student, always learning & growing. You are infused with a tremendous amount of high-vibing energy, knowledge, experience and pure love! And the best way to embody the eduction and experience is to share it, to teach it, to spread the love and light! So on you go! ✨ You are prepared to share and ready to be a Spiritual Warrior for your own practice and as a space holder for others, you are ready to do your best to elevate the collective consciousness or at the very least use these ancient practices to spread a little joy, to provide a little peace and to shine a little light on the woes of this world. ✨ I am forever grateful for this experience. My heart is so full. It is truly an honor to be a link in this golden chain of teachers. I love you @mamasukha and @papasukha and the Sukha Sangha. Thank you so much for this beautiful gift!

November 1st is #worldveganday which kicks off #worldveganmonth - a great time to reflect on your food choices and perhaps reconsider what you eat, challenge your traditions, inquire about the food system and your interactions and how they affect your health, the planet and the tremendous suffering caused to animals! 🌱 If you’re not ready to completely change the way you eat yet, start with meat & dairy reduction and start becoming informed - there is so much you don’t know, that the industries and government work so hard to hide!! It is extremely eye-opening to uncover these dark secrets! 🌱 Watch: - What the Health @wthfilm - Dominion @dominionmovement - Earthlings @earthlingsfilm - Cowspiracy @cowspiracy - Forks Over Knives @forksoverknives 🌱 If you are interested in learning more about how to transition to a whole food, plant-based diet, I would LOVE to help you! Happy to answer questions, provide tips, recipes, resources & more. I know it can seem overwhelming at first when you make a big change, so having support is helpful! Happy to help in any way I can! The planet and the animals need your help and your body will thank you! ✌🏻💗🌱 . . . #govegan #plantbased #veganforanimals #veganfortheplanet #veganforhealth #healthyvegan #rawfood #plantpower #plantfit #veganathlete #veganmom #veganfamily #cheeselovers #meat #savetheanimals

Ditto...what Moby said... #Repost @moby with @get_repost ・・・ I’ve been vegan for 31 years, so for #worldveganday here’s; Why I’m a vegan, in simple list form: 1-i love animals. And animal agriculture results in the suffering and death of over 100 Billion animals every year. 2-animal agriculture is the 2nd leading cause of #climatechange 3-animal agriculture causes 90% of rainforest deforestation. 4-animal agriculture causes 75% of antibiotic resistance. 5-animal agriculture causes AT LEAST 50% of heart disease cases 6-animal agriculture causes AT LEAST 50% of diabetes cases 7-animal agriculture causes AT LEAST 50% of most cancers 8-animal agriculture uses AT LEAST 50% of our water reserves There’s more, but simply; animal agriculture not only leads to the suffering and death of animals, it is also leading to the suffering and death of humans. Using animals for food is the single dumbest, cruelest, and most self-destructive thing that we as a species are doing. -moby p.s my ‘why I’m a vegan’ ted talk link is in bio.

Are you a Peace Warrior? ✌🏻💗 “The TRUE WARRIORS are the ones who take a stand for PEACE - they speak and stand up for those who can not do so for themselves. They are the ones who do whatever it takes to create and bring more INTEGRITY, more HARMONY, and more LOVE into our world. A Warrior is CONFIDENT but HUMBLE. They are COMPOSED but FIERCE. They live their life with an open heart, full of grace and compassion.” Jai Dev Singh ✌🏻💗 Reflect on this concept as you #vote - as you choose what to #eat and as you speak to others today. Are you someone that brings more peace, love and harmony into this world? Will you lift others around you? Will speak up for someone who can’t speak up for themselves? Will you be a protector? Will you be a Peace Warrior? Or will your actions cause pain, harm, destruction and further division? Who will you be today? You decide. ✌🏻💗 . . . #peacewarrior #peace #love #bekind #govegan #betofortexas #votevotevote #veganfortheanimals #voiceforthevoiceless #whoami

#California friends - this is so important...PLEASE #VOTE YES on Proposition 12 on 11/6 to prevent animal cruelty! The animals are counting on you California! 🐄🐓🐖 Proposition 12 is a historic citizens’ initiative that would ban tiny cages for baby calves, mother pigs, and egg-laying hens at factory farms and ensure that veal, pork, and eggs sold in the state come from operations that meet this same basic standard. In short, Prop 12 would help end one of the cruelest and most widespread forms of animal abuse in existence. 🐄🐓🐖 #Repost @yesonprop12 with @get_repost ・・・ On November 6th, we must vote YES to on Prop 12 to enact the strongest law curtailing the extreme confinement of farm animals in the world. #yeson12

I’m raising a conscious child. She knows that meat means animal and animal means friend. She chooses not to eat her friends. 🌱👊🏻 Sweet side note about this picture...after taking this picture she said “mamma, do you know why I wanted to smile for the picture even though it is sad...because I want the farmers to see my smile and then maybe they will smile at the animals and if they smile at the animals maybe they won’t hurt them.” Brilliant, sweet, tender-hearted, animal-lovin, world-changer! 💗🐄🐖🐐🐓🐇💗 . . . #dayforanimals #govegan #veganfortheanimals #farmanimalrightsmovement #animalsarefriendsnotfood #worlddayforfarmedanimals #stopslaughter #vegan #plantbased #vegankids #veganfamily #veganmom #savetheanimals #savetheworld #tinytoepf #tinyactivist #fastagainstslaughter #vegantoddler

Tomorrow, 10/2, is #worlddayforfarmedanimals - a day to memorialize and mourn the innocent lives that are suffering and dying at the hands of mankind. 💔 Each year, an estimated 70 BILLION cows, pigs, chickens, turkeys, and other sentient land-based animals are caged, crowded, deprived, drugged, mutilated and macerated in the world's factory farms. Then they are brutally slaughtered for our dinner table. Countless aquatic animals are caught and suffocated by vast trawler nets, so we can have our fish fillet or tuna fish salad. 💔 If it is not in your every day practice already, I ask you to please take this one day to recognize the brutality of the food industry - reconsider what you choose to put on your plate tomorrow or perhaps even reconsider what you put on your plate for next hundreds of tomorrow’s! You can take it a step further and speak up for these animals, take a stand for them and #fastagainstslaughter with me for 12-36 hours - the same amount of time these animals go without food or water as they are trucked to their death. 💔 I am here to help you transition to a plant based diet, to free yourself from this chain of suffering. Reach out anytime, I’m happy to help you take the first step or as many steps as you need help with! #goveganfortheanimals ✌🏻💗🌱 . . . #vegan #govegan #plantbased #meatismurder #dairyisscary #veganfortheanimals #veganforhealth #veganfortheplanet #plantpower #plantbasedathlete #nomeatathlete #veganfamily #veganmom #burgers #meat #meatandcheese #animalsarefriendsnotfood

It was a cacao kind of morning this morning! Just felt like I needed a hug in a cup and extra nourishment. It was a tasty cup o’ love - ceremonial grade cacao, coconut oil, Maca powder, cinnamon & cayenne! 🌱👊🏻 I had terrible dreams last night about being surrounded by snakes and got bitten by a huge boa constrictor while in a pool that I couldn’t swim out of! He bit me on the right hand multiple times while I was trying to shake him off and avoid getting wrapped and squeezed by his 15’ Long x 3’ wide body!! It was a struggle to get away with snakes everywhere!! Ugh!! What is that all about?! I need to interpret this dream! 🐍 Did you know that Organic Raw Cacao has 40x the Antioxidants of Blueberries; it is highest Plant-Based Source of Iron; Full of Magnesium for a Healthy Heart & Brain; More Calcium Than Cow's Milk (eeew) & is a natural Mood Elevator and Anti-Depressant?!

“Self care is the ultimate selfless act. When you invest in yourself, your own personal development, your own self care then you step into a better version of yourself. You can not serve others unless you serve yourself first. We are a holistic organism - there is no physical and mental - these things are integrally intertwined.” - Rich Roll ✨ It’s important to take time for yourself, to be quiet, to meditate, to be mindful, to practice inner awareness, to exercise, to nourish your body with healthy food, to get good sleep, to drink plenty of water, to commune with high-vibing, positive people, to get outside and into nature, touch trees, put your feet on the earth, to cultivate deep love and compassion for yourself and for all beings, human and non human, to tune into consciousness and tap into life source. These are the basics of self care and in turn you are more able to care for others, you are more in the flow of the universe, you will find peace, happiness and joy in all that you do! This is a FACT! Try it out for yourself and see what happens! ✨✨✨ . . . #selfcare #nourish #meditate #practiceyoga #boxing #running #strongmom #richroll #bekindtoyourself #eatmoreplants #love #higherconsciousness

BOOM!! Now this is good news! 🐰 #Repost @animaljustice_ with @get_repost ・・・ Incredible news! 🙌 California lawmakers just voted unanimously to BAN the sale of products with ingredients that have been tested on animals—making it the first-ever US state to do so! The new law will go into effect January 1st, 2020, giving retailers the opportunity to phase out old stock and fill shelves with entirely cruelty-free products. 🐰 Meanwhile in Canada, Bill S-214, which would ban cosmetic animal testing and the sale of animal-tested products is making its way through Parliament. We’re optimistic: The future is cruelty-free! 🙏

#Repost @gurusinghyogi with @get_repost ・・・ When the migrations out of Africa began, the fork in the road was where Israel is today. There were those who turned left and ended up in the northern regions of Russia and Europe. Those who turned right, ended up settling in South Asia. When the ice ages came with relentless speed, those who were in today’s Russia and Europe were devastated, their food sources wiped out . . . they resorted to hunting, killing and eating meat. In the animal kingdom, carnivores are the only ones who divide territories and protect them aggressively. The herbivores eat together, share land together without aggression. The Himalayas (the only major east west mountain range in the world) protected South Asia from the glacial advances. Those that turned right, all that time ago, were not disturbed by the ice and spent their millennia developing great knowledge, wisdom and sharing everything. This is where living food, the metaphysical sciences and fantastic arts were first developed. But because of the vast aggression that comes with territory -- carnivores have now dominated the Earth. In the aggressive times, of territory and individual wealth, life has been about being the greatest; competing with others; winners and losers. Now, in these new times -- in order to survive -- life requires being great; seeing everyone as equal to you and cooperating for a collective win. Everyone in the new times will need to be treated with respect -- lifted with the common tide -- held in highest esteem -- embraced with equality, not mechanisms of hierarch. It’s now known to climate scientists -- for all humanity to be fed, your diet will have to be plant based; your attitudes will have to be sharing and caring . . . not competing and fighting. Human success in the new times will favor collective health, and collective wealth, for all life on the planet . . . not just humans. Our prayer is that you are ready to depart from the old normal; take on your new role of a master teacher, and teach the ancient collective wisdom by example; embrace everyone and enjoy their accomplishments as much as your own. Be the change that’s essential to thrive.
