History & Herstory

Myth, Tantra Yoga & Social Change


with R.R. Shakti, Paul Joseph & Dayna Seraye


The stories we tell ourselves define us. 
Are you ready to revision the past for a new tomorrow?

Join Tantra Yoga Psychology expert R.R. Shakti, Ph.D.
and Black Historian Paul Joseph to explore...

  • How to heal our personal and collective wounds through working with story, including how to recognize and rewrite the stories we tell ourselves to experience more of the wholeness we desire.

  • What our history books do not tell us, and why reclaiming the full story of Black History is vital to becoming the allies we wish to be in our quest for racial justice and equality.
  • The timeless power of myth and tantra yoga to address our contemporary questions and longing for psychological healing and social transformation.
  • A feminine, inclusive approach to social change to embody, re-imagine and re-create a just and humane culture and society for all.
