Leadership Training Intensive: Yoga, Purpose, and Action 2.0

Suzanne Sterling, Hala Khouri, Seane Corn of Yoga Purpose & Action 2.0 Off the Mat leadership training at Yoga Tree Telegraph

Off the Mat founders, Seane Corn, Hala Khouri, and Suzanne Sterling have been teaching the powerful 5-day Yoga, Purpose and Action Leadership Intensive yoga training for a decade.  The work has evolved tremendously and out of this growth, they are launching the 2.0 version. Yoga, Purpose and Action 2.0 is a 5-day leadership Yoga Tree SF workshop training intensive for anyone wanting to discover, refine or expand their purpose in the world and live a life dedicated to justice and inside out transformation.  We believe that collective liberation is the goal and this requires a commitment to a personal journey of introspection, healing and accountability that allow us to participate in an effective and healthy way. We also believe that embodied practices like yoga, meditation and ritual are powerful tools for both self-inquiry and sustainability.

The arc of this training begins with a personal inquiry about the ways you have been shaped by your life experiences and how that influences how you see the world and participate.  Next, we explore how to transform our wounds into our gifts, with a very practical and creative approach to taking action in conscious and collaborative ways. All of this is done within a context that acknowledges the systemic issues that shape our worldview and our actions.

OTM founders each get to share the essence of their work this week. This is a rare chance to be with three world-renowned facilitators who model collaboration as one of the crucial tools for ongoing action.

This training includes:

Embodied MysticismA Journey Through the Chakras with Seane Corn
Trauma: Personal, Interpersonal and Systemic Dynamics  with Hala Khouri
Voice of Change: Liberation, Expression and Truth Telling  with Suzanne Sterling
Embodied Social Justice: Power, Privilege and Positionality: How we are shaped by the larger systems we live in.
Purpose and Action: What does conscious engagement look like and what do you need to move forward towards living a life of meaning and sustainability dedicated to justice for all beings.

This training is for people looking to envision, articulate and live fully their purpose as well as those deeply steeped in their work but who need  community and support. We are committed to creating a space where people of all genders, gender identities, races, abilities, body size and sexual orientation feel included.

If you have already done our 5-day intensive, we suggest considering doing this one.  Our trainings have evolved tremendously and people who have repeated the course have expressed that it was highly beneficial and strengthened their work in the world.

This course qualifies for 27 hours of Yoga Alliance Continuing Education credit and the Yoga Tree Continuing Education Program.
