Joining the collective healing process. I bow to all who are speaking out and for the men who are also speaking out. For me, it started from a little girl. Lecherous 60+ 3rd grade teacher - daily kissing us girls goodbye with yucky lips and trying to take us to back room of library. Lecherous Santa. Lecherous Photographer. Just creeps and feeling too ashamed to even tell my parents. Never feeling safe with the Rapist "Stinky" in the news and taking most of my adult life to not be sacred of the dark. Being flashed by jerks- too many times in urban Oakland, San Francisco, Memphis, NYC. Narrowly escaping rape in village Kenya. Being grappled in crowded places all over the world. Holding sisters who have gone through much worse from family abuse to rape to domestic violence. Holding space for brothers who were also violated and abused. And also eventually stopping practicing yoga in systems/paths where the Gurus/ teachers were sexually exploiting or abusing their students. It is going to take women and men rising together. May all beings be and feel safe, protected and empowered to speak out and may all beings be respected.
