I’m very pleased to be among such fine company in this new collection of articles edited by my friends Carol Horton and Roseanne Harvey. My article is called: Modern Yoga Will Not Form a Real Culture Until Every Studio Can Also Double as a Soup Kitchen and other observations from the threshold between yoga and activism. It evolved out of the presentations I gave in the fall of 2011, during the height of the Occupy movement.
