The Heart of Meditation: Week 3 Meditation with Jivana Heyman

Friday, July 23

FRIDAY MEDITATION: 9 - 10:00am PDT | 12 - 1:00pm EDT

We'll explore ways to make meditation accessible by practicing a few different forms as well as exploring the ways that meditation is not accessible or welcoming.

This means considering trauma-informed practices, and understanding contraindications for these subtle practices. We’ll also focus on cultivating agency in ourselves and in our students. This session will include a guided meditation as well as traditional pranayama and meditation practices.

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!
