This week, we sit down with the incomparable Hala Khouri, a sought-after speaker and trainer on the subject of trauma, yoga, and social justice. Originally from Beirut, Lebanon, Hala has dedicated her life to the study of trauma, justice, and building resilience and is a co-founder of Off the Mat, Into the World, a training organization that bridges yoga and activism within a social justice framework. Hala reads a passage from her new book Peace from Anxiety: Get Grounded, Build Resilience and Stay Connected Amidst the Chaos (Shambhala) and offers an honest and insightful take on how to have hard conversations re: racism, science and spirituality, fatphobia/body image, politics, and more. Hala's recipe for success lies in the title of this episode: "Reflect, Regulate, Relate, and Repair." Plus, we share our latest Zoom fails and even experience a real-time fail/embarrassing moment during our recording. Find Hala's offerings, including her upcoming book club with Peace from Anxiety, at www.HalaKhouri.com.
