During the month of September, I will commit to a 30 day Health and Wellness Program, which will help to create change in my own life, as well as the lives of others! This includes a minimum of 10 minutes everyday to being active (yoga, fitness, dancing, anything!), to doing my best to follow the nutrition tips, and to be open to/trying the holistic healing advice.
I know from personal experience that Yoga can give us the tools to become happier, healthier, and more socially conscious. This may sound like a big claim, but it is the true! This is a chance for me to transform my life and the lives of others on a global scale!
Many spiritual traditions refer to 30 days and the power it has to transform habits, relationships, jobs, and patterns. It's within that time span that we gain the power to make or break habitual patterns and ways of living. Megan has led 2 Be the Change: 30 Day Body, Mind, and Soul Challenges over the past year and she says that "Everytime, magic happens for participants and for myself."
It seems like a big commitment, but I can ensure you that it will be one of the most powerful things I do for yourself...and for others.
Many spiritual traditions refer to 30 days and the power it has to transform habits, relationships, jobs, patterns. It's within that time span that you gain the power to make or break habitual patterns and ways of living. Together, we are working towards improving our own health and wellness through a 30 day body and mind challenge, so that we may be more effective in all that we do, and part of what we are trying to do is create change. Through the Challenge we are collectively trying to also raise awareness and funds for women and girl survivors of human sex trafficking in India through the Global Seva Challenge, sponsored by Off the Mat, Into the World.
Since 2007, the Global Seva Challenge has raised over $2million for projects in Cambodia, Uganda, South Africa, and Haiti. The Global Seva Challenge India 2012 aims to raise awareness of the roots causes and impact of the global sex trafficking industry, support organizations in India that are providing refuge, rehabilitation, and economic opportunities to survivors, and empower survivors to lead lives with dignity and respect.
Through this Challenge, both the 30 Day Challenge and the Global Seva Challenge, we are supporting Apne Aap, Sanlaap, Kolkata Sanved, Made by Survivors, and Clean Himalaya.
I invite you to consider participating with me - 30 days of thoughtful yoga and wellness practice, while raising awareness and funds for survivors of global sex trafficking.
If you feel compelled to learn more about this issue and how you can help, you can access the charitable sites through my fundraising page. I'd like to try and raise a minimum of $250 during the month of September.
Here's a bit more from Megan's site to explain where the funds will go. In May, $20,000+ was raised for Because I Am a Girl during the Ottawa Yogini Yogathon. She's such an inspiration to all.
