Strong Body, Steady Mind: Harnessing the Courage for Change
Tue, February 6 2018, 6pm with Jenny Burkholder
Strong Body, Steady Mind: Harnessing the Courage for Change is a 4-week discussion and movement based series that focuses on helping participants use the ancient philosophical ideas of Patanjali?s Yoga Sutras and asana practice to guide them into social change, working to build equitable and inclusive communities. Each session will be divided into two, one-hour halves. One half will be a discussion of Patanjali's yamas (moral/ethical precepts such as practicing nonviolence and living your truth), an exploration of their significance in our lives, and their application to social action. The second half will be an asana practice, with meditation and breath practices included, which will strengthen the body and steady the mind, harnessing our courage and readying us for action. Tuesdays, February 6, 13, 20 & 27th from 6:00-8:00 pm. Price for the series: $100 Here?s what past Strong Body, Steady Mind: Harnessing the Courage for Change participants are saying: ?This course gave me tools for staying centered as I continue to move in those directions.? ?I find myself talking about it constantly, anytime the conversation turns to the distress and the stress of this era we are living through. Most are caught by my fire and by the ideas of such a class as a training ground for the warriors we need to be?without the rage or the shutting down...? ?If I take the time to care for my body and myself there are tremendous benefits. In doing so I become stronger and mentally fit. For me that means I have the ability to think clearer, and react to the world around me with purpose and meaning.?
