Find Your Place in the Movement - Month 4

September 27 - October 22, 2021

Discover your unique role in building the future that we all deserve with Jacoby Ballard, Kerri Kelly, Michelle Johnson, Susanna Barkataki

Critical consciousness is our awareness of who we are within the larger socio-political context. It is a vital part of our self-reflection practice and, more importantly, self-accountability and responsibility in our movement towards collective care and liberation. This month will offer you a foundation in decolonial practices and social justice.

We will make the connections between yoga and collective liberation and care. Ultimately, as we locate ourselves within this larger web of dynamics, this can help us know what our particular role might be in creating the Beloved Community that Martin Luther King, Jr spoke about.


Weekly sessions throughout the month will take place on below days & times. Recordings will be sent to all participants within 24 hours of each day's session:

  • Monday Lecture: 2 - 3:15pm pdt | 5 - 6:15pm edt
  • Wednesday Practice: 9 - 10:15am pdt | 12 - 1:15pm edt
  • Friday Meditation: 9 - 10am pdt | 12 - 1pm edt

100% of your contribution to this course helps to support and sustain our network of community leaders, activists, our ongoing scholarship program, and our greater OTM community worldwide who are at the frontlines of change for our collective wellbeing. We greatly appreciate your support!


For your reference: Each week will consist of 3 (three) independent online offerings that will tie into one another and take you on a full experiential journey. The arc and content of this training has been very carefully designed, in deep collaboration with an incredible list of community leaders, activist, and educators.
