Ilan of EvolvingHumans.com uses energy to heal. From a yogic understanding, he is tapping into prana, an energy which is responsive to consciousness. It also makes up an energetic blueprint of our bodies, similar to the way HTML exists behind what you’re seeing in a web browser. By changing the energetic blueprint, he is able to manifest instantaneous changes in a person’s physical body.

I first became aware of his work when I came across this video of him demonstrating his ability to control pranic energy in a way that others could feel:

People feeling Energy for the first time!

He then began demonstrating that he could also heal with this energy, posting videos of him healing strangers he met on the street. …


My son is counting on me. Your child is counting on you. Our nieces and nephews and grandchildren are counting on us. We must stop letting them down, we must stop throwing away their future.

10 Years to Change the World

We aren’t taking this seriously enough. Ecosystem collapse may sound like a fancy word about something that might distantly affect us, but it’s actually describing a current crisis. Everything we depend on for our daily life itself depends on the natural ecosystems of the earth. From food and water to the air we breathe, the planet is providing us with the means of life. …

There are an estimated 300 million yoga practitioners worldwide. The number of Americans practicing yoga has increased by more than 50% in the last decade. Yet the majority of practitioners have no clue that yoga asana (the physical poses), though important and beneficial, is just one limb of the yogic path.

The result of meeting yoga asana with an individualistic, capitalistic and appearance based culture is detrimental to the essence of yoga. …


Beginning a journey of healing

If you think I’m a shitty person, you’re right. Honestly, I’m the shittiest person I know.

Why? Cause I know every detail about my every transgression. Every comment behind someone’s back, everything I stole without getting caught, every nasty thought that never crossed my lips.

Sure, I’ve hung out with some scumbags and there are some really famous shitty people, but I only know a fraction of the horrible shit they’ve done. I know every single fucked up thing I’ve ever done, which is a way longer list than I have about anyone else.

And I’m not some teachers pet church boy raised in a sheltered home who never had a chance to do bad things. Au contraire, I’ve done pretty much every shitty thing there is to do, other than murder (but I have attacked people with a deep desire to kill them, and no intention to stop… luckily there was always someone around to pull me off in those moments). …

Emotional abuse is defined as:

“An ongoing process in which one individual systematically diminishes and destroys the inner self of another. The essential ideas, feelings, perception, and personality characteristics of the victim are constantly belittled….The most salient identifying characteristics of emotional abuse is its patterned aspect… It is… the ongoing effort to demean and control, that constitutes emotional abuse.”

Hello ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, yogis and gangstas, proletariat and bourgeois — we gather you all here today as fellow humans, to tell you a tale of life, a tale that we’ve each personally experienced, a tale about that moment when a human life is birthed from womb to world, water to air, and darkness to light.

Let me tell you about my experience, what it is like for a privileged white boy, who never wanted kids, to start a family. I’ve gone from drunkenly tipping porta potties for fun and angrily beating up strangers to vent, to tenderly holding this bundle of love in my arms and crying with joy as I look into my wife’s eyes. And am I ever glad that I made it here.

We’re both wounded kids, Penpa and I. Don’t get me wrong, everyone has childhood wounds, so I’m not saying we’re anything special. But I can’t talk about our first child without bringing up our root wounds. …

Many of us who have been part of the silent majority are awakening to the invisible fog of racism which we’ve lived under for years, and the way our complicity, complacency, and silence has played a role in the rise of overt racist pride in majority white countries. This new awareness inspires a desire in many of us to do something about the current systemic injustices that marginalize BIPOC and put them in a disadvantaged position. …


For each kind of human temperament, different yogic paths are laid out. Mainly there are four major branches of yoga from which all other disciplines and specializations are derived. Let’s just go through an overview of these four yogic branches.

1) Karma Yoga

This is a path of selfless service. For a karma yogi, selfishness, feeling unappreciated and getting burned out are the main problems.
