Suffering and Liberation

A Spruce Knob weekend with kindred souls…

No one person is an island.

Understanding the afflictions that cause suffering inspires a deeper exploration of how we create a space of ultimate liberation and freedom.

Oppression exists. How can we free ourselves of our attachment to afflictions and shift our consciousness that we can be free regardless of the circumstances?

Liberation is understanding our humanity and being able to see the humanity on others. In such, we need to understand our freedom is dependent upon the freedom of others.

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. Are you free? Do you live in a just and fair world? In todays toxic culture, we have normalized a lot of the crazy so as to adapt… Are you living your purpose in your community?

MENTAL HEALTH ADVOCATE & YOGA INSTRUCTOR I'm Ney, from Tanzania, currently living and teaching Yoga in the DMV - Washington D.C. Metropolitan Area. I'm also the Co-founder & Chief Operations Officer of a nonprofit in Tanzania called Tap Elderly Women’s Wisdom for Youth - TEWWY. I started practicing Yoga to manage my debilitating anxiety; and it has since transcended to fuel my passion for Social Justice. TEWWY, a mental health stakeholder in TZ, facilitates psychosocial interventions by bridging the intergenerational gap through training elderly retired women in Interpersonal Counseling. The grandmotherly Wisdom&Wellness Counselors (WWCs) provide mental health services, support and resources to their underserved communities. The WWCs facilitate Wisdom&Wellness Circles, safe-spaces for people to share & care beyond what meets the eye as they build community. I teach Yoga as a radical tool in creating just and sustainable communities through the promotion of mental health & wellness. As we integrate the practice of Yoga in TEWWYs Mental Health Intervention Programs, we are building communities that are well equipped to adapt to change and cope with adversity. If you would like to be a part of our Wisdom&Wellness Community, let’s connect below.
