The September 2021 ACMHE Contemplative Education Webinar:
with Jillian Lain
Wednesday, September 29th
3 - 4 pm EDT (12 - 1 pm PDT)
Live via Zoom (registration closes an hour before the event)
In this session, participants will learn about yoga as a lifestyle, the gray area between lifestyle & religion that colonization has created, and how the lessons of yoga can impact ways to engage with the environment, advocate for those who are disenfranchised in environmental/nature settings, and for the environment itself. Many people have become familiar with yoga as the latest exercise fad due to the colonization of yoga. In order to decolonize yoga, understanding interrelatedness to the life of a yogi, which includes care and compassion towards others and our environment, is vital.
