Episode #121: The Dharma of Karma Yoga with Sarahjoy Marsh
The Shift from self-centered to community-impactful yogis
You may have noticed on your yoga path a few shifts. The most obvious shifts at first are about how we feel. We get grounded, integrated, detoxed, clarified. The personal shifts are the beginning of our path to personal and planetary integration. The broken parts of us get healed. We become more whole in the process.
Soon we notice a bigger shift. Our life is our own and not our own. We feel called to action. This is the path of karma yoga. We become of service to where we sense the need we can help. We get fired up.
In this engaging conversation with karma yoga expert, Sarahjoy Marsh, she talks about her personal and professional yoga path. From her work in prisons with inmates to helping heal affluent white women with reclaiming their relationship with body and food, Sarahjoy is a powerful force on our planet.
