Workshop: "Yoga, Ecology and the Environment" with Swami Omkarananda

The path to living in harmony with Earth begins not with fixing the environment, but with fixing ourselves – specifically our perceptions about Earth. Our environmental and social problems (e.g., climate change, species extinction, environmentally-linked cancers, genocide, deforestation) are rooted in separation between ourselves and the environment. We need to see everything: Earth, Cosmos, Sun, Worm, Bee, as well as each other with “new eyes”. This workshop will explore how we can connect modern ecology and environmental activism with the teachings of yoga in a way that inspires contemplation and action.
