Spiritual Activism Workshop #2

June 10, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT


In the first of this series of workshops, we explored the meaning of ‘spiritual’ activism, the values of yoga, and how those values translate into ethical imperatives. In Part 2, we’ll do a quick re-cap of Part 1 and then focus more on how yoga’s values and ethics translate into moral choices and practical action.

We’ll break up into small groups to devise action plans that align with specific causes, such as environmentalism, civil liberties, etc, with strategies and tactics that express the values of yoga in the form of practical action. We’ll also look at motivation and spiritual vision to see how the experience of a ‘spiritual’ activist is different from that of an activist engaged in the same activity for the same cause who isn’t making an internal connection between social action and an over-arching spiritual context for that action. Participants will acquire new insights into the nature of spiritual activism, learn how their spiritual practice can energize their participation in progressive activism, and feel inspired to take their activism to a higher spiritual level.

This is a pay-what-you-can workshop with a recommended contribution of $15 and options to register for free, $5, $10, or $15.
