Let’s be better than gossip.
As a word nerd particularly attuned to the energetic vibrations of the words we use, as well as the patterns of communication we choose, I feel compelled to offer up an energetic assessment of gossip.
Given the swirl of uninvited opinions surrounding a certain yoga teacher’s (alleged) personal life, we “yogis”—devotees of humanity’s inherent unity—are well-served by this little diatribe on the divisive and destructive energetics of second information haphazardly spread throughout our shared reality.
Dani Katz established her reputation as one of Los Angeles’ finest literary talents by way of her bold voice, her expanded perspective and her mastery of language, having published hundreds of articles in the LA Weekly, Los Angeles Times, Whole Life Times, LA Yoga and Swindle, among others. In addition to her broad spectrum of practical experience and formal studies, including a Master’s Degree in Journalism, she has spent the past seven years immersed in the study of integrated languaging and conscious communication, researching and perfecting the myriad ways, whys and hows that language influences our every human experience. Katz currently lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where she just finished writing her first book, which may or may not be called Love in the Time of Chemtrails.
