Spiritual care means taking care of your spirit and can ultimately lead you to the knowledge of who you really are. It involves removing the layers of ignorance and delusion, so your spirit can "wake up" and know itself. Once you know?not theoretically but through direct experience?that you are pure and perfect, it is then that your body and mind lose the power to control you and define your life. You become free from their grip, their need for attention, and their constant demands on your time and energy. When this happens, spiritual care reaches its fulfillment.By drawing on the wisdom of yoga, this workshop delivers practical methods to care for your spirit and remove obstacles in its path. You'll explore your own spiritual identity, discover yogic care practices, and directly experience the benefits of yogic spiritual care. You'll leave this workshop with tools to support your own spiritual growth, as well as practices to bring back to your community.This workshop is inspired by the Master of Divinity program at Harvard Divinity School where Happy Jack is currently studying yoga philosophy, mindfulness, and spirituality.

Change and adversity can impact your spiritual life in challenging ways. Loss, trauma, and resistance to change during such times can hinder your potential for spiritual growth. By drawing on yogic teachings on mindfulness, impermanence, and the nature of the mind, and considering recent advances in positive psychology, this workshop explores how yogis (and yoga teachers) can apply these perspectives in theory and practice, as well as how mindfulness rituals can help foster spiritual resilience when experiencing life change, adversity, or spiritual crisis.In this workshop, you'll experience effective yogic practices to navigate change and adversity, and you'll learn how to build your spiritual resilience. You'll discover tools to support your own spiritual growth, as well as practices to bring back to your community.This workshop is inspired by the Master of Divinity program at Harvard Divinity School where Happy Jack is currently studying yoga philosophy, mindfulness, and spirituality.
