On Campus Program

Permission and Refuge A Healing Retreat for Men of Color


Join internationally recognized yoga and meditation teacher, activist, and the founder of Active Peace Yoga, Reggie Hubbard, for a program designed for all men—and those who identify as men—of color. 

The burden men of color bear to survive and endure societal oppression and repression is onerous and unnecessary. In this program, we will join together to lighten our load, hold space for healing, and welcome our collective liberation through practice and presence. Taught through the lens of the African American male experience, this on campus experience will guide you to reengage with one another after the heights of the coronavirus pandemic.

Reggie will guide you to curate space for rest and energetic clearance, healing, and compassionate and conscious conversationThrough daily meditation, yoga, sound experiences, and more, learn how to 

  • Explore how silence and sound can be powerful agents to clear the mind 
  • Demystify these practices so they are more approachable and impactful
  • Meditate and create your own healing practice, regardless of where you are in your experience.

Nearly all communities of color hold individual and collective stress that impacts their health and well-being. This program will allow you to return home with space to process and heal from the burdens you have been carrying, a feeling of being seen, and with practical tools you can implement in your life. Let's pave the way from surviving toward thriving in these uncertain times in a conscious, caring community. 

Note This program also coincides with the National Day of Remembrance for brother George Floyd, May 25, and all those lost to police violence and gun violence. There will be a virtual Silent Sit with a national audience—a powerful moment of collective BIPOC meditation and reflection.
