In response to the call from Diane Ferraro and Jessica Durivage (of Where Is My Guru) for yogis’ take on social media, this is my two cents on the topic of “incorporating mindfulness into your online communication.” In a nutshell, I suggest asking ourselves three questions before hitting publish on any social media platform:
- Is it truthful?
- Is it relevant?
- What’s my intention for action?
“Where is My Guru co-hosts Jessica Durivage and Diane Ferraro will speak as presenters of their co-authored panel presentation “Radio Free Yoga–Self-Realize x Social Enterprise,” at the SXSW Interactive Festival 2012 headquarters in Austin, TX. Their panel will explore bringing yogic philosophy into the mainstream discourse of social media, providing a platform for positive, healthy and effective communication based on the five yamas, or principles, which guide how individuals interact with the world whether in person as practiced through the ancient tradition of yoga or today through the world wide web. Joining Jessica and Diane on the panel are Waylon Lewis, founder of the decade-old print-to-online far-reaching publication elephantjournal.com, and Seane Corn, world-renowned yoga instructor and co-founder of the philanthropic organization Off the Mat, Into the World.”
