What is "1000 Breaths"

On the last day of the year in 2010 and 2011, a special event called "1000 Breaths" awakened audiences to their own innate power of freedom as well as supported a movement to free the enslaved children trapped into a prostituted lifestyle they do not truly choose.

What started as the 1000 Breaths fundraiser event has become a movement for the freedom of us all. This blog expands now to encompass all the good works being done in the name of "freedom for all" as heard on the "FREEDOM FOR ALL" Internet Radio show.

How Gangs Are Contributing to the Rise in Prostitution

Maureen Cavanaugh hosts a program on KPBS called "These Days" in San Diego. In November she did a show on how gangs are contributing to the rise in prostitution. She shares how county supervisors are calling for tougher penalties for human trafficking because they now have more details and statistics about the impact street gangs are having on teenage prostitution in San Diego. This is where the short educational film "Indoctrinated" will help this cause, as the film will reach the teens and parents to teach them the tactics gangs use to lure the innocent. Listen to this interview; it is quite informative: http://www.kpbs.org/news/2010/nov/16/gangs-contributing-rise-prostitution/

What is this blog about?

I know sometimes this blog - and the related 1000 Breaths event - may seem split between a few different topics.
  • An update on the Indoctrinated film - aimed at stopping youth prostitution.
  • Posts about the cause of child sexual exploitation.
  • Words of support for the healing modality of "Breathwork."
What do these all have in common?
What I realized of late was a common denominator of "freedom."

Freedom for the children on the street, freedom for ourselves as we move deeply inward to remove our own barriers and blocks.

Many times the freedom we wish to achieve for ourselves is the healing from a painful past where we were judged, scorned or hurt. These inner states - born of yesteryear - are like trapped little children who long for attention and love.

As we work to free the children from the slavery at the hands of the careless and cruel pimps, we free our selves from our own prisons. As the outer, so the inner. So that we can be fully expressed as free souls that we are.

What Do Super Bowl Sunday and Sex Trafficking Have in Common?

An article was forwarded to me about how child sex trafficking statistics is expected to rise with Super Bowl Sunday. The article states that according to the Dallas Women’s Foundation study, 250 underage girls are victims of sex trafficking in North Texas, a number that child advocates say will increase exponentially during the Super Bowl. The Super Bowl will be played in Arlington, Texas this year. The study reports that over 740 girls are exploited across Texas annually.
