The Jivamukti Yoga Center here in NYC might as well be referred to as an animal activist center. Everywhere you go, there is vegan literature, books, brochures, and even one of the most delicious vegan cafes in the city. Jivamukti also hosts animal events on a consistent basis, offering their glorious Union Square location to help the greater good. I have met literally dozens of yoga students and practitioners whose lives were changed — and whose vegan lights were turned on — because of their experiences being enlightened (truly) at Jivamukti.
Now, not only do we have a chance to give back, but in giving back we will also be paying it forward… for the animals’ sake. The marvelous Sharon Gannon, animal rights activist and outspoken ethical vegan (not to mention the renowned yogini and co-founder of the Jivamukti Yoga Method) has come out with a new CD called “Healing the World with Mantra — Sharanam.” “Sharanam,” meaning “refuge” in Sanskrit, won praises by Vanity Fair, who described the CD as a “holistic vision extending to strict vegetarianism and hard-core animal rights activism.” Animal activism indeed; the CD advocates for animal liberation through the healing power of music mantras. It brilliantly combines modern sounds with ancient prayers of healing and compassion for all beings.
Today, Wednesday, October 27, we hope you’ll join Jivamukti Yoga, Our Hen House, and dozens of other cruelty-free non-profits, companies, and individuals as we help spread the word about “Sharanam.” Today only, anyone who purchases a copy of this CD through Amazon.com will be eligible to receive an array of cruelty-free gifts, including free yoga classes, downloadable CDs and MP3 songs, vegan recipes, discount coupons, and even a chance to win a one of a kind Yantra painting.
