Yoga for Climate Action: Santosha

Breaking Free by Getting Jailed in Whiting, Indiana

My arrest didn’t feel like a risk, it felt like a transaction. It was a transaction I felt called to make, but it doesn’t feel like the most meaningful step I’ve taken against the climate crisis.

Helen MacDonald’s memoir, H is for Hawk, is about falconry as mourning in the wake of her father’s sudden death. But what struck me most about MacDonald’s book is the way climate change is present throughout, without being the intended subject.
