Willows Rise Book Club

a monthly gathering with a little reading, more discussion and a whole lot of social justice

Viva la Revolucion!

Join together in a social justice book club with action. Each month, we’ll share a virtual discussion designed to foster community, connection, and conversation about important topics in our world at the intersection of yoga and social justice. Each month will feature a shared reading connected to the crossroads of yoga and social justice, and a rotating discussion facilitator.

Each cycle will have 3 rounds to discuss the text: that is connected to the crossroads of yoga and social justice:

Round 1 – a book club conversation and work with WSY staff and teachers

Round 2 – a book club conversation and work with students and community members

These discussions often beg to go deeper, and we’re expecting that to be the case! Stay tuned to find out how to dive further into the topic in the weeks following the community discussion!

Our first text is Restorative Yoga for Ethnic and Race-Based Stress and Trauma by Gail Parker and will be hosted by Maria Elena Montero.

For the first cycle, teachers will meet on Jan 31, and the community discussion will be Feb 7. All sessions are 3–4:30p. Discussion sessions are free, but please register to receive the Zoom link!
