Take your yoga practice and community-building intentions to another level through this intensive exploration of effective social justice activism grounded in compassion practice. Together we will dig deep into the real impacts of injustice and inequality in our communities and larger world and grow our skills in being agents of social change and justice. Through mindfulness meditation and daily yoga practice we will build a foundation for opening our hearts to the pain of injustice, healing ourselves and our communities from the trauma of oppression, and fostering the resilience we need to stay in the struggle over a lifetime.

This weekend retreat facilitates a holistic integration of mind/body/spirit with our intentions to be a participant in addressing inequality and injustice. We will invite participants to engage in an exploration of social justice concepts in a practical and embodied way, as we feel this work is vital for anyone doing community engagement work! 

Led by Seane Corn, Hala Khouri, Suzanne Sterling, and guest facilitator Teo Drake
