Yoga In Action
with Leslie Kersha and Lisa Harrison
Saturdays April 7th- April 28th · 1:00-4:00pm
Are you ready to embark on a journey of self-discovery in the service of others? Join Leslie and Lisa for this four-week program inspired by their Off The Mat, Into The World: Yoga Purpose in Action training. Their experience at Off the Mat was so transformative, they committed to bringing Yoga in Action back to the Columbia community and YOU! This is an opportunity to build community around yoga and service, to develop relationships with other yogis and activists, and to collaborate on creating authentic and lasting change close to home. In this training, with the support of a small group of peers, participants journey from inward witnessing and acceptance to outward purposeful and accountable action within their communities and the outside world. Yoga in Action’s mission is to bridge the gap between yoga, interpersonal transformation, social justice and action by building a network of embodied, inspired, and motivated people, committed to actively serving their communities in a conscious and sustainable way.1/ GroundingOpening meditation & creating spaceGroup introductionsOverviewDiscussion: What is conscious activism / What does it mean to be ‘in service’Finding your true northSomatic Tracking Exercise: How to know when you’re ‘living on purpose’2/ Self-InquiryCheck-InOpening meditationDiscussion: Consciousness in ActionTransforming limiting beliefs into affirmations3/ Finding Your PassionCheck-InMapping the selfCreating a purpose statementExercise: Inner criticRitual sharing of purpose statement4/ Experiencing InterconnectionExercise: What moves youDiscussion: Helping vs ServiceDiscussion: PrivilegeMeditation: Receiving supportExercise: Support circle5/ Creative ActivismDiscussing and exploring effective & creative activismCreating an individual visionPitch vision & get feedbackDiscovering how our yoga practice can support us with our Vision6/ CollaborationCheck-InBoundary Exercise: How do we show up in groups?Exercise: Stating our needsConsensus process & collaboration skillsIntroduction of a seva projectConsensus process practiceSacred contextThe importance of small circles for sustainability7/ SustainabilityDiscussion: Sustainability & tools for the Spiritual ActivistContinuation of consensus process for seva projectCommitment ceremony & celebrationHow to Stay Connected to OTM
