Yoga, Purpose & Action Intensive

Intensive Price Tiers: One of the ways Off the Mat stands for equality and access for all is by creating a pricing tier structure that invites participants to pay based on their income level. This way, people who can pay more “pay it forward” by supporting those who can’t. Please consider what is truly sustainable for you, and choose a price that feels in integrity: $1,350 Supporter (support other leaders as well as yourself); $1050 Sustainer (pays for you); $750 Community (discounted fee).

To register, please call 877.944.2002.

The workshop is part of our Yoga Service initiative. Learn more.

Omega Institute A Coach’s Perspective on Body Wisdom by Richard Michaels
We can use our body as a fortress or as a cathedral—protecting ourselves from the possibility of pain or danger, or opening ourselves to the beauty and wisdom in every cell. We’re taught to trivialize our bodily sensations because we’re afraid of suffering, eros, or narcissism. So we close ourselves off to our deepest yearnings, our desires for love and freedom, our hunger for expressing from the deepest parts of ourselves. More

American Buddhism & Diversity
When Being Black came out in 2000, I was chagrined by what I had done. I realized that, out of my love and appreciation for the dharma, I issued this invitation to people of color into a Buddhist American space that was not welcoming. Obviously there were pockets and exceptions—but for the most part, the Western Buddhist community did not want or know how to receive them. I had invited black folks to crash the private upper middle class party that was going on and it was just not wanted. Really, I was quite bereft for a while, feeling foolish and naïve. More

There was no need for labels. More
Omega Institute Move Your Mind in 15 Minutes by Tony Horton
A Meditation With Tony Horton
I have a 15-minute meditation that I break up into five-minute chunks and do at a lot at my seminars. I did it at Omega, and it was really interesting to see the responses from everybody, from “Oh my, that’s so weird and so scary," and "This stuff is foreign to me,” to people who said it resonated deep in their soul. The first five minutes is just sitting quietly in a seated position, maybe on a yoga block or a folded up blanket, and doing a standard meditation of breathing, without making it too complicated.
