Life after Loss: Yoga for Grief and Loss with Molly Lannon Kenny
Time & Location
About The Event
We live in a culture obsessed with individualism, a culture that denies death, a culture that is uncomfortable with suffering and values fixing, or doing, over simply being. Our yoga practice encourages us to become deeply interested in our interconnectedness, to understand and accept death, and to develop the skills and wisdom necessary to simply sit with discomfort and even pain. In a world so deeply filled with suffering, in a life in which death is an inevitable part, how do we as yoga teachers and students reconcile our practice with our prevailing culture? How can we offer true solace to those who are experiencing acute, intense grief? Join Molly Lannon Kenny as she talks us through the conundrum and offers years of experience, practical tools, and both encouragement and caveats for working with people in this most tender of human experiences.
Molly Lannon Kenny was the founder and director of the Samarya Center, the Northwest's first non-profit yoga and therapy center for over 15 years before moving permanently to her home in Mexico. During her time at Samarya, Molly led over 30 yoga teacher trainings, was vice president of the board of the International Association of Yoga Therapists and taught and published extensively both nationally and globally. In 2008 she traveled to Tel Aviv, Israel to develop the first yoga therapy training program at Reedman College, Tel Aviv. She is frequently a guest on yoga podcasts and the keynote speaker at major yoga conferences.
Molly’s current focus is on Bedside Yoga, Yoga and End of Life Care, Yoga and Grief Recovery, and the intersection of contemplative practice and social justice. She also delights in sharing the inter-spiritual mystic practices she learned while a student at the Center for Action and Contemplation with Richard Rohr. Molly has written multiple articles in both scholarly and lay press and is the author of the Yoga Memoir, "No Gurus Came Knocking." She has started more than 20 different yoga outreach programs and leads biannual tours to India with one of her longtime students who is a native of South India.
