Creating Sage Spaces in Yoga Communities – a discussion

Hosted by Ximena Savitch & Tamar Samir

“The family is the most tragic site for drama because the greatest horror arises when cruelty is done, where the presence of love is assumed.” —Aristotle

Yoga teachers and leaders of spiritual communities are called upon to create safe and welcoming environments in which all practitioners can investigate their unique life circumstances with care and support. In order to create a safe and trauma-sensitive practice environment, it is important to clarify the ethics of the student-teacher relationship, through ethical principles and an ongoing discussion about the application of those principles.

In this meeting, we will discuss and define ethics, spiritual bypassing, and different forms of spiritual abuse. We will discuss ways that students and teachers can support each other and identify and prevent abuse of power in yoga communities.

This discussion is free.

CTZNWELL Teach-in for a Living Wage

CTZNWELL is currently involved with the Fight for $15 movement, and is excited to hold a teach-in on the subject at Third Root on Sunday March 6 at 6:45 PM. This event is leading up to a state wide action for living wage. Asana practice and discussion led by Ximena Savitch & Aditi Dhruv.

Yogis and meditators from all over the city have been partnering for over a year to support the striking low-wage workers asking for a raise to the minimum wage. This issue could be decided on by the end of March and deeply impact 3 million people in New York state. Our practice challenges us to create unity and wellbeing not just within ourselves, but to play a role in creating the conditions of wellbeing for all people, and that includes economic justice. Teach-ins are happening at studios and centers across the city to build support for this important issue.

CTZNWELL is pleased to host one at Third Root on March 6 from 6:45-8, led by Third Root teacher Ximena Savitch and supported by Aditi Dhruv (Third Root teacher alum), and visited by a minimum-wage worker who will share their story. We will also be sharing information about a very important upcoming day of action on March 15, where we will accompany the workers to Albany and provide wellbeing support. If you are interested, please come to the teach-in, or visit www.ctznwell.org/wage for more info and to express interest in the March 15 action day.
