Collective Liberation Does Not Start With Individualism
Collective Liberation Does Not Start with Individualism
A 90 Minute Workshop with Dianne Bondy, Reggie Hubbard and Anusha Wijeyakumar
In this workshop we will take a deep dive into the concepts of collective liberation and individualism.
We will examine how individualism, capitalism and white supremacy work together to rob the individual and collective of our liberation and ultimate happiness.
You will come away from this workshop with a new understanding of these forces which rob of us of our freedom and humanity, advocacy and effective allyship, how to embrace activism and strategies for building communities where we hold each other up

Through disciplined practice, ruthless focus and surrender to inner peace he has adopted the yogic path, now as a 500 hour certified yoga teacher who has extensively studied with leading teachers such as Faith Hunter, Amy Ippoliti, Yogarupa Rod Stryker and Sri Dharma Mittra and countless other amazing teachers he has encountered along the way.
Reggie teaches Members of Congress, Congressional Staff, leading progressive organizations and individuals, sharing techniques for growing peace and ease as a foundation, not an afterthought.
