Teaching Compassion within the Tragedy

  By Tanya Tiger Last night, I sat in the living room with my husband and five year old daughter, watching the nightly news. It was a pretty typical evening. Footage of Hurricane Harvey was being shown and the news anchors were interviewing people who had lost everything. I was covered from head-to-toe in goosebumps and, as I listened, my eyes welled up with tears. My heart ached for each and every soul who now had to make the long journey of healing and rebuilding their lives. My daughter looked over and said, “Mommy, why are you crying?” I...

Media, Electronics & Other Weapons of Mass Distraction

  By Tanya Tiger I fear we are quickly becoming a nation of distracted consumers. I won’t generalize by saying we all get caught up in television shows, social media, or stare endlessly at our smartphones, but I believe that many of us fall into this trap.

Sometimes we find the inner-drive and strength to light our own fuse. Sometimes it takes a powerhouse like Robin Lee to step into our lives and show us how to ignite the fire that is waiting to burn within. When I was asked by The Tattooed Buddha to interview Robin, I hesitated but only for a moment. As soon as I perused the The Babe Collective (TBC) website, I couldn’t wait to...

Defining Compassion: One Life at a Time.

By Tanya Tiger There is a deep and abiding desire in the hearts of most people to make this world a better place. When we allow ourselves to get still and quiet we can hear that small, yet persistent, whisper from within saying, “something isn’t right here.” Though we may try to distract ourselves from that truth by watching television, or becoming engaged in gossip, or keeping up with what’s trendy, we cannot silence that nagging echo, resonating in our core, “something isn’t right here.” It can be difficult to accept that the world we live in is falling...
