“Spiritual activism is centered in internal awareness. It is inner-directed and other-focused, asking, ‘What is the wisest way for me to elevate this situation for the benefit of all?’
. . . . It relies on stillness, quiet, and self-reflection before taking action.
In moments of stillness and quiet you might be called to action, but this is not the same as reacting to a situation because it upsets you.”
Gail Parker, from Restorative Yoga for Ethnic and Race-Based Stress
