Calm Steps to Vibrant Actions:
A Yoga, Spirituality and Social Justice Summit

May 30- June 3
Houck, Arizona

At this potent time of upheaval in our world, we feel the call to arise and serve with new and deep resolve to uplift humanity. The conflicts of our time can often upset our inner balance – a balance that might not have been entirely secure in the first place. We feel a passion not only to be a part of the conversation, but also a part of activism that transcends violence, paternalism and nationalism. We know that our actions must be developed locally, with global understanding. We know that if we are not a part of the upliftment of our communities, our silence is part of the problem. In this 5 day retreat, we will learn to increase our capacity and flow into action:

  • Learn meditation skills to help heal the mind
  • Learn about the therapeutic effects of yoga in healing trauma, addiction and illness
  • Engage daily in deep restorative yoga practices
  • Be inspired by each other’s stories
  • Learn some of the spiritual practices of The Diné (The People) of the Navaho Nation
  • Engage in the written arts to help find your voice
  • Read from inspirational leaders, and discuss the way forward for ourselves and our communities
  • Remember that we don’t have to be the loudest voice to be a potent voice
