Skill In Action: From Practice to Action


Skill in Action: From Practice to Action is a workshop designed to explore patterns of oppression, power, and privilege, and to respond to the current cultural challenges through practices of self-study, contemplation and collective action.

It can be difficult to remain centered amidst the chaos of a culture that continues to divide and conquer. Many are wondering how to respond to increasingly oppressive policies, political divisions and the current cultural upheaval. While we have questions about how to respond, I believe that we must respond with steadfastness and courageous hearts to the urgent concerns of this time. Contemplative practices, including meditation and yoga, allow us to work with sensation, toxic thought patterns, cultural conditioning, overwhelm, and anxiety through mindfulness and thoughtful care. In this workshop, we will deepen explore identity and social location, how we are uniquely positioned to make change, accountability and responsibility and how to truly integrate the principles of yoga into our daily lives in order to be stewards of justice.

Skill in Action provides experiential embodied activities to wade through emotions, learn our history and challenge the urge to remain complacent. If you are a yogi, healer, or social change agent this workshop is designed for you.

This all-levels yoga workshop will include a dharma talk, meditation, asana, and discussion.

Schedule: Saturday & Sunday: 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm
