Yoga for Peace Symposium: Activating a Global Shift - Nassau, Bahamas

Join Spiritual activists engaged in great movements of peace in the world - Matthew Fox, Alastair McIntosh, Pat McCabe, Philip M. Hellmich, and Swami Brahmananda - at the 12th Annual Yoga for Peace Symposium, “Activating a Global Shift,” at the Sivananda Ashram Yoga Retreat, in Nassau, Bahamas

How do we awaken and nurture the seeds of peace and social justice in the world?

In 1969, Swami Vishnudevananda had a vision here at the ashram that catalyzed his focus on peace through yoga for the rest of his life. An activist, an educator, and a visionary, he brought together people from all religions and mystical traditions to share and exchange and he trained yoga teachers, planting seeds of peace for them to bring into the world.

In these tumultuous times, we are honored to welcome four spiritual activists engaged in great movements of peace in the world, each deeply embodying their spirituality and impacting the world in important ways. They will inspire and guide us, and share what they’ve learned over the years and around the world working within themselves and on the ground to create peace.

Now is the time to tend to the seeds of peace within ourselves and each other.
