Loved so many of the signs at the women's march this month, but this sign really sang to me: I Love Naps, But I Stay Woke.
The Urban dictionary defines 'stay woke' as "to keep informed of the shitstorm going on around you in times of turmoil and conflict." Well, folks, the shit storm is here. We can go to sleep, do nothing, push reality away, or we can stay woke. Stay woke will look different for all of us. Here are a few ways to stay woke:
1. Get on the Wall of Us list for 4 concrete actions to take each week.
2. Livestream Sister Giant Feb 2-4th (or go! It's in DC). Sistergiant.com
3. Follow on instagram or Facebook @elizabeth_gilbert_writer or @glennondoylemelton because they're kicking ass with concrete action and not holding back on the WHY we must stay woke.
How does this relate to yoga nidra? yoga nidra helps you stay woke, to come out of what Clarissa Pinkola Estes calls a, "female psychic slumber." That's when our wild woman thrives. She is the nasty woman. She is the woman who sees a shitstorm and says, "HELL YES, I'm IN . I commit to make a difference."
