RE: “#ThemToo” [Special Focus, Apr. 18]:
Such an important piece of journalism for our community. Thank you.
As a teacher and yoga teacher, I feel it is of paramount importance that we do no harm, that we check for readiness in any task and confirm that permission is granted, and that clarity of what the support will be is provided, so permission given is about specifics.
I have never been to Bhava or met Peter Rizzo. However, I do know that sexual and physical abuse has no place in any community, especially by a trusted teacher — and that silencing through legal means is a patriarchal practice, not a quest for truth.
