A predecessor article to the others recently showcased on this blog in elephant journal and rebelle society, this YogiTimes article published yesterday is the version I submitted before revisions requested by editors of those other journals. It is significantly a different story.

The evolution of the publishing process has been illuminating to say the least, but more interestingly, is how many ways a story can be told.


Those who do not have power over the story that dominates their lives, the power to retell it, rethink it, deconstruct it, joke about it, and change it as times change, truly are powerless, because they cannot think new thoughts
. —Salman Rushdie

One thought on “YogiTimes article: “Yoga and Compassion in Prison”

  1. Interesting to read all 3 articles back-to-back-to-back. It offers an insight into the machinations of publishing as it relates to a medium’s audience focus. Although the words may have been compromised the message wasn’t. Although the stories are significantly different to accommodate different audiences the author was still allowed to speak; to retell it, to rethink it, and to change it as necessary.
