Willows Rise Book Club: a gathering with a little reading, more discussion and a whole lot of social justice
Viva la Revolucion!
Join together in a social justice book club with action. Roughly monthly, we’ll share a virtual discussion designed to foster community, connection, and conversation about important topics in our world at the intersection of yoga and social justice. Each session will feature a shared reading connected to the crossroads of yoga and social justice, and a rotating discussion facilitator.
Each cycle will have 3 rounds to discuss the text: that is connected to the crossroads of yoga and social justice:
Round 1 – a book club conversation and work with WSY staff and teachers
Round 2 – a book club conversation and work with students and community members
These discussions often beg to go deeper, and we’re expecting that to be the case! Stay tuned to find out how to dive further into the topic in the weeks following the community discussion!
Our second text is My Grandmother's Hands: Racialized Trauma and the Pathway to Mending Our Hearts and Bodies by Resmaa Menakem and will be hosted by Lori Wilen.
For the second cycle, teachers will meet on March 14, and the community discussion will be March 21. All sessions are 3–4:30p. Discussion sessions are free, but please register to receive the Zoom link!
