I enjoy and learn so much from Sally Kempton's articles. She resonates with me through every article she writes. Thanks for sharing such a gifted person with us.

I want to incorporate every word! So amazing to see what I am experiencing explained with such razor-like precision. Very encouraging! Often, a Yoga Journal article that draws me in is written by Sally Kempton. Thank you for sharing your wisdom.


Thank you again Sally Kempton for articulating what l feel and sense but am often groping in the dark for. Your revelations allow me to be aware of the need to transcend and grow beyond how "The strategic ego may convince you that you'll be safe if you have a great job or a mate who loves you, if you own your own home, or, in our celebrity-focused culture, if you're famous. Then, when you fail at the task you've given yourself, you will feel as if you've lost everything."

I need to read this article every morning before work. I work at a state institution and my two co-workers are evangelicals who have essentially shut me out of communication. In response, I've become more open and communicative with them in a non-harmful, non-violent, non-confrontational way. However, they continue to exclude me from important meetings and I call them on it to let them know that I'm part of the team. This is my test, my challenge to practice yogic principles in a hostile environment.

This article was right on time for me...thanks Sally for your insight.


this was a great article!!!
I found myself practicing this today...then I got this email! How perfect! It confirmed in me that being vulnerable is the only way to grow. Being vulnerable is not a bad thing like society will tell us, it is a beautiful thing!
Thank you!
namaste :)


I am absolutely in LOVE with this article! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
