Are you feeling helpless? Compulsively reading and refreshing the news? Unsure of what you can do as a spiritual person and yogi? Scared for a general election that will determine our future?

This fall, seize the opportunity to focus on care for the self and our communities. Join renowned civil rights activist and author Valarie Kaur, and learn how to use revolutionary love as a compass and framework to live your life in these charged times. Celebrated by visionaries such as  Elizabeth Gilbert, Michelle Alexander, and Van Jones, Valarie has earned a reputation for inspiring change. Developed by researching stories of social movements, the wisdom of faith traditions, the science of human behavior, and by tapping her own frontline activism, revolutionary love answers the collective question, “How do we labor for justice when the labor feels endless?”

Revolutionary love, a practice rooted in joy, is an answer and the call of our time. In this intimate, virtual 4-week journey, Valarie Kaur offers a stunning new framework to anchor your life and anti-racist activism. This work asks you to see no stranger, to be brave with your grief, harness our rage, and to work toward reimaging the world. Her work shows that when love is reclaimed through a feminist lens, it becomes a form of sweet labor and resistance. It shows that love can be taught, modeled, and practiced. 

Journey into the practices and learn how to use revolutionary love as a compass through sessions focused on 

  • Storytelling 
  • Ritual 
  • Meditation 
  • Movement 
  • Self-discovery exercises.

 Join this restorative community today, and make autumn a season dedicated to compassion and revolutionary love!

In addition, the program will be held in Valarie Kaur's new learning hub, an online space that contains additional lessons, tools for applying each practice of the revolutionary love compass, a downloadable reader's guide, and an introductory lesson.
