Activist Tools for Equanimity
How we show up as activists is largely dependent upon the soil in which we plant our intentions. If we want to skillfully change the external world, it’s essential that we change our inner world. Join our webinar with Ari Nessel, who shares mindfulness practices that can calm and focus our minds to foster a sense of wellbeing, presence, and equanimity.
Ari Nessel is the founder of The Pollination Project, which has made over 2,500 seed grants of $500 to $5,000 in over 100 countries to passionate individual change-makers working in areas such as environmental sustainability, social justice, and community health/wellness.
After an epiphany in 1997 changed the way Ari related to food, his heart opened up to the impact every person’s life has on countless beings and the world at large. Soon after this insight, Ari had a vision of himself attaining his worldly goals and dreams, yet he was left feeling empty inside. This led him to ground his life with practices such as mindfulness, compassionate eating, philanthropy, service, and transformational entrepreneurship.
Ari actively experiences the challenges of being a modern-day yogi and knows it’s a delusion that life can be compartmentalized into separate boxes such as family, work, service, health, and spirit. He remains constantly challenged to live his life in alignment with his values, and to utilize the numerous privileges he has been given to turn seeds into blossoms, and blossoms into fruit.
Ari shares essential activist tools for equanimity during our next Sustainable Activism Webinar on Thursday, April 5, 5 pm – 6 pm PT (8 pm – 9 pm ET). You can join this live webinar via phone or online or listen to the replay later.
