The Revolution Within: Women’s Week at Kripalu

ABOUT WOMEN’S WEEK
Creating a world of equality, justice, and peace requires both outer and inner work, learning, and commitment. This program is for women and female-identified individuals. Join 300 other women for a week of solidarity and community as we recognize and remember that the most needed revolution is within.

Together we honor the crossroads of yoga and activism, cultivating inner resources and offering an antidote to anxiety and despair—through and beyond a divided society and disruptive political times—into the deeper realms of dharma, compassion, and social justice.
