Audio inspiration, by Sean Corne

If you missed Minnesota Public Radio's "Speaking of Faith" (SOF) interview with Sean Corne over the weekend, you can now download the mp3 or listen to the podcast by clicking the above link. You'll hear Sean talk about her social activism program "Off the Mat, Into the World." Our own Sarah Longacre has taken Sean's challenge and will be traveling to Uganda next year to open a Blooma birth center! We are SO excited about this. She is working her tail off to raise $20,000 to make this happen. Blooma appreciates every donation, big and small, to help bring better birth choices to Ugandan women.

What's more, get to know SOF's host Krista Tippett during this interview. She will be speaking at a Blooma event in November... details to come! Krista's interview with Sean is fantastic. I was particularly moved by hearing Sean talk about yoga as "body prayer." And wait until you see it! She demonstrates body prayer in the 3 minute video below, while dedicating the practice to her father, who is ill with cancer. The grace and fluidity of her practice is breathtaking. Watch, and be inspired.
