How do we co-create safer yoga and spiritual communities?


Matthew Remski’s latest book, Practice and All is Coming, features his careful listening to survivor stories of assault and abuse, close analysis of the cultic mechanisms at play in the sphere of Pattabhi Jois’ Ashtanga community and gives a clear pathway forward to enhanced critical thinking, student empowerment and community resilience.

This evening with Matthew will highlight his PRISM model – the many practical tools for recognizing the basic energies and patterns of toxic dynamics, promoting transparency, accountability and harm reduction for all practitioners now and moving forward.
