Practice: Yoga and Compassion Meditation

How can we expand our notions of well-being from an individual practice into a political movement? Kerri Kelly, founder of CTZNWell, teaches yoga as a way to build capacity for transformative leadership, detox from harmful ideologies that impact our bodies and our communities, and harness the influential power of the wellness industry.

Join us as we align our hearts toward societal well-being in this purpose-driven discussion between Kerri and Compassionate Action Series host Kate Johnson. In addition to the conversation, the audience will learn two short practices: a gentle, accessible chair yoga sequence to embody self-compassion, and a guided meditation to explore the activity of leadership as caring for the whole community.

About Compassionate Action How can we cultivate the power within us to balance the power between us? Join meditation teacher Kate Johnson, co-creator and host of Compassionate Action, a series of interactive evenings with artists, changemakers, culture creators, and healers who leverage the power of spirit to fuel their transformative work in the world. Each session will include a conversation, a meditation, and an activity to integrate the learnings. You will have a chance to strengthen your skills to access the clarity, connection, and courage needed to effect change in challenging times. We hope you will leave fortified, inspired, and more skilled to turn your wise intentions into compassionate action.
