You could all name a few, but the way I love and know the most to experience this unity is by practicing yoga together. Yoga is about exploring ourselves, together, here and now. I don't care who has the shiniest yoga studio or how many people want to come and practice there or who is the guru or who is the saint. Bigger than any of that is the commitment of being real. When all the bullshit is stripped away, magic can happen—the magic of humanity, the magic of this moment. From this firm ground of what's real, we can step past illusion and pretense and into the sacred privilege of being human.
