Workshop: "Mindfulness, Social Justice and Learning the Language of Peace" with Maureen Shannon-Chapple


The Center for Religion & Spirituality invites you to this public Yoga, Mindfulness and Social Change workshop with meditation teacher and yogi Maureen Shannon-Chapple.

This workshop will explore the intersection between mindfulness practice and social justice work, with special attention to developing mindful communication skills. How do we effectively communicate, especially in conflict situations, in a way that reflects the values and insights nurtured in the quiet of meditation? How do we express the practice in active, socially engaged contexts? Exploring the ways others have answered this question will alternate with practice periods and communication exercises as a way to inspire our own responses to these important questions.
