The Center for Religion and Spirituality invites you to this Yoga, Mindfulness and Social Change workshop 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.
