‘Love Calls Us to the Things of This World:’ Teaching Yoga and Poetry in China

On the heels of a disastrous election in the United States, I got the lucky chance to travel to China, made possible by a dynamic group of Chinese feminists, some of whom I first met when teaching poetry and justice workshop in Thailand a few years ago. In China, I taught “Working for Peace, Insisting on Justice” seminars in two provinces, the first for workers in Guangzhou in southern China, the second for community organizers, academics, NGO workers in Dali, considered a spiritual region, with deep Buddhist roots and centuries of artistic work.
