Yoga, Purpose, and Action 2.0
August 12 – 17 2018
PLEASE NOTE: This program has been cancelled. Join Seane Corn for Spirit Speak Teacher Training from September 23 – 28, 2018.
OTM founders, Seane Corn, Hala Khouri and Suzanne Sterling have been teaching the powerful 5 day Yoga, Purpose and Action Leadership Intensive for a decade. The work has evolved tremendously, and out of this growth they are launching the 2.0 version.
Yoga, Purpose and Action 2.0 is a 5 day leadership intensive for anyone wanting to discover, refine or expand their purpose in the world and live a life dedicated to justice and inside out transformation. We believe that collective liberation is the goal, and this requires a commitment to a personal journey of introspection, healing and accountability that allow us to participate in an effective and healthy way. We also believe that embodied practices like yoga, meditation and ritual are powerful tools for both self-inquiry and sustainability.
The arch of this training begins with a personal inquiry about the ways you have been shaped by your life experiences and how that influences how you see the world and participate. Next, we explore how to transform our wounds into our gifts, with a very practical and creative approach to taking action in conscious and collaborative ways. All of this is done within a context that acknowledges the systemic issues that shape our worldview and our actions.
OTM founders each get to share the essence of their work this week. This is a rare chance to be with three world renowned facilitators who model collaboration as one of the crucial tools for ongoing action
This training includes:
- Embodied Mysticism: a journey through the chakras with Seane
- Trauma: personal, interpersonal, and systemic dynamics with Hala
- Voice of Change: liberation, expression, and truth-telling with Suzanne
- Embodied Social Justice: power, privilege, and positionality
- Purpose and Action: exploring what conscious engagement looks like and the ingredients needed to sustain a life dedicated to justice for all beings
This training is for people looking to vision, articulate and live fully their purpose as well as those deeply steeped in their work but who need community and support We are committed to creating a space where people of all genders, gender identities, races, abilities, body size and sexual orientation feel included.
If you have already done our 5 day intensive, we suggest considering doing this one. Our trainings have evolved tremendously and people who have repeated the course have expressed that it was highly beneficial and strengthened their work in the world.
