“Sacred activism is available to all of us today and is as simple as taking a first breath in mindfulness, listening deeply to those around us, or fully seeing whatever is present before us. Mindfulness helps us heal from our personal fragmentation so that we can approach our community fragmentation with an open and courageous heart, effecting social change from a place of love and understanding of ourselves, of the communities we serve, and of those we are used to calling enemies.”

This inspiring article was written by a community activist who discovered the transformative power of mindfulness and the magic of compassion for easing the suffering in engaging with important issues of social injustice.
