Few of the effects of global warming are melting of polar ice, wildfires, hurricanes, droughts, wildlife extinction of endangered species. Have we not receive the messages the earth is sending? #SustainabilityEdu#climatechange#globalwarming
I’ve been working in global community development, business, & women’s empowerment in one way or another for over 15 years now.
In 2012, I left what I thought would be my “dream job”, working to empower women entrepreneurs in emerging markets (3rd world countries) through business education, when the organization I was working with signed a multi-million $ agreement to work with a very well known global mining company. This company has a history of human rights, labor rights, & environmental violations, as most of them, if not all, do. •
The destruction this company has left in it’s path is unfathomable, and it is just one of many that operate in this manner all around the world... in (what used to be) pristine rainforests and some of the most bio-diverse places on earth.
This pushed me too far. I was no longer in alignment with my values. I left. It wasn’t easy. I was heartbroken. • •
At that time, I committed to doing my own work, my own healing. Later that year, I launched @indiabeeyoga, with the mission to be of service by “sharing the tools of Yoga, Meditation, and mindfulness in order to raise collective consciousness.”
It starts with us. It looks like it’s the oil companies, the mining companies that are the enemy. But if you really look at it, it’s actually OUR way of life. It’s US that’s putting pressure on the rainforests. It’s us that need to actually really look at the way we’re really living.
The privilege of being alive at a time like this; the privilege of really being AWAKE to the consequences of our actions, is the beauty & gift of our time.

Can you guess what’s the blue color? It’s waste water from a jeans factory, the blue color comes from denim jeans. This wastewater often ends up in rivers or elsewhere in the outer environment which is where all beings live. Often as consumers, we completely disregard the negative effect our products have on the environment. ⠀
