About This Event

Yoga scholar, practitioner, and museologist Christopher Rzigalinski invites us to reconsider how we relate to the material day-to-day world. Discuss how social and environmental injustices are linked to histories of Western thought, resulting in social and political tensions that haunt us today. In addition, explore cultivating spiritual activism and turning intention into action with a guided object-driven meditation practice. This workshop empowers us to begin the collaboration and community-building needed for sustainable change.
