Amplify Voices of the Global Majority Free Online Series

INDIGENOUS WISDOM, COMMUNITY CARE & COLLECTIVE LIBERATION 

About the Series

We have joined forces with changemakers around the globe who work to dismantle inequity and harm, steward the planet, prioritize collective wellness, and stress interdependent liberation. 

Throughout history, voices of the Global Majority*––Black, Indigenous, people of color––have been at the forefront of breaking down barriers of systemic issues that affect both the planet and humanity and ushering in radical change—whether that has been bringing yoga to the west or fighting for justice on the front lines. 

Now is a time that requires us to listen, heal historical wounds, and do something different. We enter this work as an act of community care because none of us can be well unless all of us are well.

What to Expect

Be in relationship with wisdom holders during the months of February, March, and April. Each session will educate, inspire, and challenge us through fiercely authentic, live online conversations that uplift varied perspectives, life experiences, and identities within the wellness community. 

The line-up includes adrienne maree brown and Mia Herndon, Millana Snow and Lauren Ash, Hawah Kasat and Abdul Muhammed, Yoli Maya Yeh and Aja Shah, Seher Sikander and Eniafe Isis Adewale, Shawn Stevens and Shannon Chada, and Raudhah Rahman and Mia Park. 

Dive into the following topics: 

  • Indigenous perspectives on community, culture, and nature 
  • The importance and urgency of climate action 
  • How to cultivate an inner and outer awareness for personal and collective liberation 
  • How the right relationship to the planet and one another fosters healing 
  • How to harness the power of the Spring Equinox 
  • How to live with a worldview of inter-being, not division and separation 
  • Healing through Indigenous yoga.

Outcome

Continue the journey to personal and societal transformation in a community united in compassion and committed to equity and accessibility for all.

*Since Black, Indigenous, and people of color represent over 80% of the world’s population, we use the term Global Majority to point out the demographic inaccuracy of the euphemism “minority.”
