What is an Innovative Yogi?
Innovative – featuring new methods; advanced and original… introducing new ideas; original and creative in thinking
Yogi – a person who is proficient in yoga. Yoga literally means “union”… it is the neutralization of ego-directed feelings, because once these become stilled, the yogi realizes that he is, and that he has always been, one with the Infinite (1)
An Innovative Yogi moves from a ground of yogic understanding, bringing ancient wisdom into the modern world, embracing the technology surrounding us and employing it for the work of healing all souls, merging ageless contemplative practices with our present day science in order to support all life on earth, as we collectively shift away from the current paradigm of greed, destruction, and disconnection, into one of abundance, generosity, love, and connection.
It’s Time for a Consciousness Shift
We are all living through a great zeitgeist shift on our planet, globally purging and releasing the behaviors which are driving our civilization off of a cliff, and at the same time awakening to the interconnected nature of our reality.
As Innovative Yogis, we see a glorious opportunity to live a sustainable, abundant, vibrant, and joyful life on this planet, not just for the few, but for all, and we are deeply grateful to be here to help manifest it into being.
We recognize that our interconnected nature means we can no longer think of ourselves as isolated from nature or separate from people on the other side of the planet, or separate from those in our neighborhood, from our relatives, our spouses, parents and children. If we don’t come together as one human family and take care of our home sustainably, then we’ll perish from our own greed and attachment to the illusion of separation.
We are committed to the personal and social work necessary so that humanity can manifest new systems to replace the crumbling ones, building from the ground of a mystical perspective, the view that we are all one, and a scientific understanding of what that means.
We see the problems facing our planet, the abundant solutions available to us, the consciousness block holding us back, the awakening energy bubbling up demanding change, and we’re ready to change ourselves so we can change the world!
You can support us in manifesting this vision via our Patreon page, where you have the power to promote our work through a system of monthly patronage, for as little as $1 a month. Becoming a Patron of Innovative Yogis is a vote with your dollar for a future of sustainability and abundance for all.
