Heal Activist Burnout and Find Inner Peace Through Yoga
Many people think of yoga is a tool for decreasing stress and anxiety, but it’s also a powerful practice for coping with trauma, depression, and compassion fatigue, which can afflict animal activists. Join our interview with Anna Ferguson, the author of a new yoga book that promotes veganism, for strategies to calm your mind, open your heart, and heal activist burnout through yoga, mindfulness, and breathwork.
The World Peace Diet, Dr. Will Tuttle’s transformative bestseller that helped many people go vegan, now has a companion book with yoga daily practices to guide us on our vegan journey. World Peace Yoga: Yoga for People Who Breathe has the potential to revolutionize the way millions of people approach and practice yoga. Readers learn tools for creating inner peace through breathing, meditation, posture techniques, and plant-based living.
In addition to being co-creator of World Peace Yoga studio in Cincinnati, Ohio, Anna is engaged in several evolving paradigms as a co-founder of Heärt Montessori, a school where empathy and compassion are taught as part of core academics, the Jubilee Animal Sanctuary, providing a glimpse of what a peaceful world looks like, and the Cincy VegFest, an annual one-day vegan festival.
Anna joins our Vegan Spirituality Online Gathering on Thursday, April 11, 5 p.m. – 6 p.m. PT (8 p.m. – 9 p.m. ET). Participate by phone or online with your hosts, Peace to All Beings author Judy Carman and In Defense of Animals’ Sustainable Activism Campaign Director Lisa Levinson.
