6:00 pm - 12:00 pm | Omega Institute For Holistic Studies
Join Leslie Salmon Jones along with co-teachers Sharon Salzberg, Mallika Dutt, Carla Goldstein and Michele Bertran. In an intimate setting, we examine four women’s leadership essentials—values, voice, vision, and voyage.
Whether guiding a family, working in an organization, running a business, or holding public office, leadership involves deciding what matters most. Today, the old “command and control” leadership model is giving way to “connect and collaborate,” and women are playing a central role in this important shift.
This workshop is for women who want to use their leadership to create a caring, just, and sustainable future for everybody. Through reflection, dialogue, writing, yoga, meditation, and exploring nature, we delve into our leadership stories, learn from each other, and create a shared understanding of what is needed to bring greater consciousness into the world.
7:00 pm - 12:00 pm | Kripalu
Celebrating Our Human Family
For all levels; no experience necessary.
Experience this creative fusion of yoga, the dances of the African Diaspora, and live music. Embark on a transformational journey of heart-opening movement, story sharing, singing, ritual, meditation, gratitude, relaxation, and reflection—all interwoven with the dynamic and rhythmic release of African instruments, percussion, and vocals. These sessions open up and reinforce pathways to effective self-expression, reconnect you with your unique gifts, and ignite the inherent power that we all have to transform our lives, families, and communities by living from a joyous and peaceful place.
Tap into freedom of movement, connect to yourself, others, and nature, and explore the power of personal and collective stories and traditions. Afro Flow Yoga™ founder Leslie Salmon Jones is joined by her husband, cofounder and multi-instrumentalist Jeff W. Jones, to celebrate the common core of community that unites the human family.
