Understand the Mind/Body Connection - Month 2
August 2 - 27, 2021
Discover the power of the chakra system, the physiology of resilience, and learn how we can practice compassion in our bodies as they are with Seane Corn, Hala Khouri, RW Alves, and Anusha Wijeyakumar
This month is dedicated to the mind-body connection and the different philosophies and paradigms that help us understand this connection. We’ll do this through the lens of ancient practices and philosophies like yoga and mysticism. We will also learn about the physiology and neuroscience that mirrors these ancient ideas. Finally, we explore the role of colonization in contributing to our collective disembodiment and how a decolonial lense is vital to an authentic examination of what integration and re-embodiment is. These different bodies of work can offer a roadmap to knowing yourself and understanding those around us and the world we live in.
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
