Workshop: "Karma Yoga: Transforming Self-Care into Social Change" with Arjuna O'Neal

The Center for Religion and Spirituality invites you to this online Yoga, Mindfulness and Social Change workshop with author and yogi Arjuna O'Neal.

Traditionally understood as “the yoga of action,” Karma Yoga means to perform work to the best of our ability in a state of mindfulness, without being overly attracted to the outcome or results. That is, using the ordinary actions of your life as a means of “waking up.” Essentially, everything you do—from household chores like washing the dishes, to “important” duties, like your job—becomes a way of nourishing the Universe that nourishes you. In this workshop, participants will be introduced to the principles of Karma Yoga and its application to lived experience.

Arjuna Paris O’Neal, M.B.A. is the founder, CEO and executive director of Share Necessities. Born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, Arjuna grew up in an environment of poverty, gangs, violence and drugs. Years of negative influences and thoughtless decisions led to a near-fatal shooting that changed his life forever. After being paralyzed and told he would never walk again, Arjuna was determined to improve his life and he began to research the benefits of mindful living through meditation, yoga, and education. Arjuna now holds a Master’s degree in Business Administration, a Bachelor’s degree in International Business, a yoga instructor certification, and a passion to help youth understand the importance of a mindful and healthy lifestyle.
