Satsang Presents: Fostering Yoga Principles for Social Change with Shankari Goldstein and Rev. Lílā Lucy Nelson
Saturday, March 20 • 7:00–8:30 p.m.
Join Shankari Goldstein and Rev. Lila Lucy Nelson for this rich discussion on how you can use the ethics and teachings of Yoga to create social change and activism within your community. They will discuss pathways to healing which include advocacy and courageous ideals. We will dive into some of the following questions:
- What does it look like to examine one’s own culture and your own inner spirit and shadows?
- How do the Niyama’s and Yama’s make space for equality and action?
- How do we begin to build bridges and move into reformation and reconciliation with communities that have been harmed?
- What is the role and future for Contemplative Practices and Yogis in this profound moment?
This is an online workshop. You’ll need to download Zoom to attend. Please see your purchase confirmation for the Zoom link.
