“Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.” – Arthur Ashe

 

Overview

In this 3-session online course, the beloved Reggie Hubbard of Active Peace Yoga returns to Nalanda Institute, inviting you to take a fresh look at your contemplative practice from the Bodhisattva perspective of compassion in action.  The invitation is to ask how your practice might inspire and support you to engage, serve, and impact the communities to which you belong in ways both subtle and profound.

Reggie will skillfully guide us to care more deeply for ourselves so we can find the resources to engage more fully with our social surroundings—our families, friends, clients, communities, and the world we all share. We will sharpen our perspective and deepen our inner practices as we share an experiential group journey—rooted in conversation, compassion, and connection.

This course encourages us to shift our practice from a solely inward focus to also include an outward orientation—from passive to active, in ways that align with our authentic capacities for positive social change.

 

Schedule

The breakdown of the course will revolve around the following invitations:

Week One: What Does Civic Engagement Have to Do with My Dharma Practice?

In this class, Reggie will lead a discussion around how contemplative practice can and must eventually interact with civic engagement to gain traction. How can our practice help us shift from the rugged individualism of an internalized dharma path towards cultivating an actively engaged path of compassion that leads us to feel and act responsibly towards others and the work of collective liberation our times’ demand?

Week Two: What Does an Active Practice off the Cushion Look Like?

In this class, we will explore the next set of questions that help us transition from inward to outward, passive to active. How do I envision the outwardly engaged dimension of contemplative practice? What are my current capacities for engaged activism and how can I develop the resilience, courage and skills needed to take the small and big steps that can impact others and the world we share?

Week Three: Don’t Talk about It, Be about It. Strategic Thinking for Making an Impact Locally and Globally

Through reflective and restorative practices like journal writing, working with sound and embodied breath and movement practices, Reggie will guide us into finding our voice of authentic engagement. Building on that inward shift, we will practice together speaking to and with our own communities to discover what steps will lead towards meaningful compassionate service and impact.

Please join Reggie and our beloved community in growing this vital dimension of the Bodhisattva Path!
