"We are at a choice point of how we move forward toward the promise of justice, and spiritual practitioners can bring their gifts of awareness and compassionate action to bear."   -Yogacharya O'Brian

On our spiritual journey through life, dharmic questions arise for us to tend to. One of those essential questions comes when we witness injustice. We must ask ourselves: What is mine to do? We search our hearts, our intellect, and the teachings of our tradition. How do the spiritual teachings guide us in troubled times? Are we to remain contemplatives only, or must we act? Is action in support of justice in harmony with an enlightenment tradition?

Following the killings of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor and the mass protests that arose demanding justice, with the direction of Yogacharya O'Brian, CSE leadership came together to create a program in alignment with our spiritual teachings of Kriya Yoga to address the racial injustice that is endemic to humanity.

In this program, we will:

  • Explore essential concepts about racism, how it is perpetuated, and how yogic teachings provide a way to transform it,
  • Learn how the practices of Kriya Yoga support us in bringing healing to ourselves and the world,
  • Have time to reflect and participate in small group dialogue in a safe space, to support our individual and collective healing, and
  • Ultimately, discover the blossoming of grace that is ours to contribute through inspired and engaged compassionate action.
