Workshop: "Yoga and Your Brain: Integrating Personal and Planetary Healing Through Science and Spirituality" with Dr. Jay Kumar


The Center for Religion & Spirituality invites you to this public Yoga, Mindfulness and Social Change workshop with scholar Dr. Jay Kumar.

Discover the powerful connection among Yoga, brain science, ecology, and health. We live in a time when it is becoming increasingly evident that personal and planetary healing are intimately aligned. The possible key to achieving both occurs by integrating cutting-edge science with timeless spirituality. This unique workshop explores how the latest research in brain science and behavioral medicine mirror sacred Yoga teachings to cultivate greater personal health and planetary wellbeing. This workshop is ideal for Yoga instructors, medical practitioners, mental health workers, and social pioneers wishing to explore how science and spirituality dynamically interact as a 21st-century paradigm for healing both Self and society.
