Let's start a movement -- it takes 2+ You!
As a yoga community we have the ability to join forces around a shared purpose. By working together we can - in a loud and resounding voice - create awareness about the healing powers of yoga and mindful breathing. Our collective knowledge and energy can have a direct impact on those suffering from trauma.
This movement - may start out with a small group of dedicated people - but with your help we can build a better, fairer and more sustainable world.
( If you are still not convinced - watch this: Derek Silver's TED Talk "How to Start a Movement" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RXMnDG3QzxE )
On June 28th @ 1pm this movement will go national - live streamed from coast to coast - when over 600+ Yogis, service groups, spiritual centers, veterans and military supporters join together on the idyllic Windsor Lawn of the historic Hotel del Coronado overlooking the Pacific Ocean in a 90-minute Warriors for Healing Yoga Celebration of Service led by Bhava Ram, with music by Steve Gold and special guest performers.
Join us as we gather together as one in the service of others, joining hands, opening our hearts, and giving back to those who have given so much. Selfless Service is a centerpiece of human kindness and compassion that flows through all spiritual practices and all cultures, reminding us that we are all in this together. As we lift others up, we lift ourselves to greater heights, and in our way we help to heal the world.
Proceeds raised by your efforts go directly to support programs produced by Give Back Yoga Foundation and Connected Warriors, both national foundations providing Yoga science and other healing services to our veterans and those suffering from PTSD.
