exploring boundaries, building bridges: connecting yoga, community, and self yoga outreach conference panel

How do we co-create safer more meaningful yoga and spiritual communities? Matthew Remski, keynote speaker, asks this question in his latest book “Practice and All is Coming: Abuse, Cult Dynamics, and Healing in Yoga and Beyond,” which offers a sober view into collective and intergenerational trauma. It also offers a clear pathway forward into enhanced critical thinking, student empowerment, self-and-other care, and community resilience.

To enhance this dialogue we have curated an amazing group of thoughtful and thought provoking panelists to further explore topics including compassionate boundary making and conflict resolution, self-care and all its many facets, and the concept of spiritual bypassing. Attendees will experience thoughtful challenges to predetermined ideas about what it means to live according to yogic principles of compassion and respect, while confronting harm for the benefit of communities, and individuals.

Other speakers include: Farah Nazarali, Julie Peters, Insiya Rasiwala-Finn, Sjanie McInnis, Leslie Wilkin, Danielle Braun-Kaffman, Liana Yip, Renee Turner, & Sarah Holmes de Castro.

Saturday, May 25th, 9:30am-5:30pm at Creative Coworkers 250 Alexander Street, $75 before May 5th, $100 after.  https://www.yogaoutreach.com/product/conference_2019

Recovering Desire, Passion, and Pleasure After Sexual Assault: A Reading and Discussion at Last Bookstore in Los Angeles

I will be at the Last Bookstore in Los Angeles on Sunday, June 9th, from 6:30-8:00pm with a reading from my new book WANT about recovering desire after sexual assault, recovering from trauma, and dating despite the difficulties of intimacy. I’ll be taking your questions! Please come see me there–your ticket includes a book (and is the same price!). Support me and the Last Bookstore by buying a book/ticket and coming to see me there Sunday June 9th.

Join Julie Peters, author of the book WANT: 8 Steps to Recovering Desire, Passion, and Pleasure After Sexual Assault (Mango Media 2019) for an honest discussion on what mindful sexuality means and how to apply it in our sexual and non-sexual lives. We will talk about it, meditate with it, and move it through our bodies in a gentle, all-levels yoga practice. There is no explicit material or nudity in this workshop nor any pressure or expectation to share unless you want to!

Deep rest facilitates healthful digestion, sleep, immune function, muscular repair, and even emotional processing. Touch is one of the most powerful ways to access your own internal healing capabilities. Join Julie for a deeply relaxing, stress-melting experience that combines restful Restorative yoga and delightful, gentle, hands-on Restorative touch. Rest in the most comfortable positions possible supported by plenty of props, and then go deep into the healing experience of a nervous system calmed and supported by hands-on support from Julie.

WANT: Book Launch and Celebration at Calabash Bistro

 Join Julie Peters for the launch and celebration of her new book Want: 8 Steps to Recovering Desire, Passion, and Pleasure After Sexual Assault (Mango 2019). Enjoy the delicious food and drink at Calabash and enjoy some fantastic poetry, dance, and music on the theme of Desire!

Bring your copy of the book (or a receipt from Amazon) as your cover fee and have it signed! Cover is $15 otherwise.

WANT is an incredibly intimate story of one person’s recovery, survival, and everything that comes after. It is about the possibilities of love, desire, and pleasure after trauma and all the ways we can help ourselves get through. It is the most fun book about sexual assault you’ve ever read!
