Comprising our sense of self is the drive for connection and the drive for autonomy. Karma Yoga is the path of applied awareness engaged in activity that when performed mindfully reveals and liberates our sense of isolation and separateness while enriching our individuality and creativity.
One of the archetypes of our times is the superhero – they’re doers, they are trying to make the world a better place and they have powers.

It’s also the setting we share with anyone we connect with.
