Join a Growing Movement, Give Back to Our Veterans, Practice Selfless Service!
Yoga Journal Live is honored to be hosting a special event at our upcoming San Diego Conference to honor and serve our veterans. Warriors for Healing is a foundation partnered with give Back yoga devoted to providing yoga science to those facing major life trauma and PTSD.
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 science. Our collective knowledge and energy can have a direct impact on those suffering from trauma. We can reach a wider audience and promote empowerment and transformation nationwide.
With your help we can grow a movement that expands beyond boundaries, reaches a tipping point, and together we will make a difference in the world. Just watch this video by Warriors for Healing founder Bhava Ram.
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.
