“Be seen and not heard.

Do as you’re told.

Don’t make a fuss.”

These are the lies

we are taught from childhood.

For patriarchy prefers us

docile and compliant.

But what have those traits to do

with survival, no less self-actualization?

Let us take to heart the example

of Princess Leia Organa;

who when the escape

of she and her inept rescuers was thwarted,

grabbed Luke Skywalker’s side-arm,

shouted “Somebody has to save our skins”

and blasted an escape route

right through the side of the corridor.

Let us conclude

with a simple

call to action

In the Tibetan tradition Lamas are supported

not by monasteries but by students

as such the production of these livestreams,

blogs, and class materials is supported

by the generosity of viewers, and listeners, and readers

just like you.
