Join Sarahjoy and your fellow community members in this online weekend retreat exploring the intersection of climate awareness, yoga philosophy, indigenous wisdom, and contemporary dilemmas with inspiration from Michael Dowd, Rupert Read, Jem Bendell, Catherine Ingram, Joanna Macy, Stan Rushworth, Julia Maldonado, and Kyle Whyte.
We'll be learning from multiple speakers and perspectives (via recordings), integrating yogic and dharma wisdom throughout the retreat, and practicing asana, pranayama, and meditation for resilience and adaptability. In addition, Sarahjoy will be drawing from potent teachings in the texts of yoga: the Bhagavad Gita, the Sutras and the Upanishads.
Sarahjoy will also be drawing from her extensive background in trauma-informed yoga, the teachings of Michael Dowd Ecology Theology, Joanna Macy on The Work That Reconnects, and the teachings of Deep Adaptation founded by Jem Bendell.
She will also be bringing in special guest teachers on the Bhagavad Gita, ecology + economics, regenerative gardening + grazing practices, and community building + collaboration.
We're offering this retreat so that we can come together in the container of yoga and sangha (community). We do not need to try to sort through turbulence all on our own.
In fact, indigenous and contemporary wisdom agree: we need each other. We are interdependent.
Offered via a sliding scale, proceeds from this retreat will go to the rebuilding of Breitenbush Hot Springs.
