Please join us this Spring for the inaugural Yoga CARE event.

Yoga CARE explores the teachings of the Bhagavad Gita as a Social Justice Inspiration.

Contemplation: Inquiring into the seeds of human capacity and the seeds of suffering.
Action: Socially-engaged practices to nourish human capacity and address suffering.
Restoration: Integrating that which we've considered the Shadow of human nature.
Equanimity: Maintaining our porousness and presence in the social justice margins.

Yoga CARE explores the teachings of Yoga and Social Justice. This year our focus includes the Bhagavad Gita: Contemplation (Inquiring into the seeds of human capacity and the seeds of suffering), Action (socially-engaged practices to nourish human capacity and address suffering), Restoration (understanding and integrating that which we've considered the Shadow of human nature), and Equanimity (maintaining our porousness and presence in the social justice margins).When yoga is accessible, inclusive, and respectful of the diversity and dignity of all it becomes a social justice catalyst – an opportunity for all to experience themselves as capable of making Contributions to the betterment of the whole, as worthy of their own Advocacy, Resilience, and Empowerment.

"I just finished listening to your conversation with Carol Horton. The words about political action, networking communities, your framework for a balanced life, the reminder of not being attached to the outcomes…all spoke to me. Definitely worth a replay. " ~Thanks, Linda
