Yoga, Purpose, & Action Intensive online version - 2016
with OTM founders Seane Corn, Hala Khouri, and Suzanne Sterling
5 (five) 90min session recordings
If you are unable to attend OTM’s most popular training in person, this is the next best thing! Join OTM founders Seane Corn, Hala Khouri, and Suzanne Sterling on a journey from the inside out. Through understanding the mind/body connection, the role that trauma plays in shaping us, and how to express your authentic self, we will guide you towards discovering your role in making the world a better place.
Hundreds of people have taken the in-person version of this training, and they leave feeling inspired and activated. Although we cannot recreate online the same embodied experience of an in-person intensive, our goal is to share with you the information and lectures from this course and invite you to work with the information in your own life.
Session 1: The Mind/Body Connection - with Seane Corn
Explore how our life experiencing impacts our body, mind, and spirit. During this provocative session, Seane will talk about the role of the mind/body connection in influencing our behavior and relationships. Through her amazing ability to tell stories to bring to life these ideas, she will inspire you to think about your own life and how the past can either hold you hostage or make your stronger.
Session 2: Trauma and Resilience - with Hala Khouri
We are shaped by our traumas. Like a piece of coal that becomes a diamond through stress and impact, we can learn to transform our traumas into meaningful growth. During this session, Hala (a yoga teacher and trauma therapist) will talk about the physiology of stress and trauma and how to build resilience in order to thrive.
Session 3: Finding Your Voice - with Suzanne Sterling
Speaking our truth is the ultimate expression of healing. During this experiential session, Suzanne will take you through a journey of finding your voice and authentic communication. You will also learn techniques such as active listening and Non-Violent Communication so as to effectively communicate and manifest your purpose.
Session 4: Power, Privilege, and Purpose - with Hala, Suzanne, and Seane
As we begin to take our practice off our mats, we must confront the power imbalances that exist outside of us. Understanding the dynamics that create the context that we live in is a vital part of finding our purpose within it. During this session, we will explore how the larger dynamics of oppression and inequality affect all of us.
Session 5: Activating Your Purpose - with Suzanne
This session will be a creative brainstorm of ways that you can express and activate your purpose in the world. Suzanne will guide you through experiential exercises to get clarity, practice communicating, and create a sustainable vision for your work in the world.
