    Hatha yoga is a slow-paced gentle asana practice focusing on introducing basic yoga poses and establishing a strong foundation in the practice of yoga. Hatha yoga balances the "Ha" — sun/stimulating energy with the "Tha" — moon/calming energy.

    Restorative yoga helps promote deep relaxation of the body and the mind. Postures provide similar benefits to classic Hatha yoga postures and are usually done in a supported manner to minimize strain and maximize opening.  Dress comfortably and bring a yoga mat.

    Much of today’s epidemic of toxic polarization is driven by how we talk with like-minded people about those on the other side. Too often we stereotype, dismiss, or ridicule our fellow citizens who support the other political party, its leaders, and its policies. Although political polarization in some form has always been around, it was less problematic when people interacted more outside their own silos. Nowadays, people on the other side have become not just strangers but enemies. How we talk among ourselves about them fuels fires that threaten our democracy.

    What if we learn the discipline of non-polarizing attitudes and words about the political “Other” with whom we do share a national past and future?

    This workshop will: 

    • Help you become more aware of your inner polarizer. 

    • Help you learn ways to depolarize yourself so that you can disagree without demonizing, dismissing, or stereotyping the millions of people who differ from you politically.  

    • Teach you skills for how to intervene in social conversations with like-mined people when those conversations veer into contempt and ridicule for people who hold other political views. 

    Better Angels is a national nonprofit with a mission to depolarize America. Its leadership is half “red” and half “blue.”  Learn more at www.better-angels.org
