We hold a restful space for communion with the divinity within and exploration of her sacred landscape. As our human form is in the universal design of all things sacred, let us remember how to honor, rejuvenate and restore this gift and live our lives in its highest expression. During the time of this course we will pass the sacred portals of the 9 nights of Durga Puja, Diwali, & Kali Puja amongst other portals yet to be discovered. Each two-hour session will include a restful yoga nidra meditation and discussion. Movement, ritual and a space for processing will also be a part of the experience. The session will be recorded and recordings will be available for you to download. My invitation to you all is to co-create this course with me! This is a space for you to bring your questions, queries and curiosities on Tantra and the Goddess so that we may demystify these Wisdom practices, center their Indigenous origins and discover healing tools that reside within us all. More detailed info to come as we initiate our design process. ALL ARE WELCOME!

Taught by Yoli Maya Yeh

A call is being heard loud and clear to challenge racism within and to dismantle in industry structures. Long has this system of oppression and harm been supported by overt and implicit biases, capitalist economic structures and the misappropriation of spiritual and wellbeing language into weapons of self-hypnosis, gaslighting, spiritual bypass and abuse. This series presents a map of the path we must traverse in order to liberate yoga and wellness tools and to enter the transformative justice work of anti-racism. Our approach to learning is rooted in a decolonized framework, Indigenous methodologies, is BBIPOC centered and utilizes experiential pedagogy. This is not your average unpack-your-white-privilege workshop. This is a deep dive into theory and practice of how we move from defining the problem to mapping how we move through the restorative work to arrive at the potential for transformative justice where collective healing is possible.
