Rev. angel Kyodo williams, Mahamitra is a maverick spiritual teacher, advisor and friend to many. As founder of urbanPEACE, Center for Transformative Change (CXC) and creator of the fearless Practices: Meditation, Yoga and Learning, williams sees Transformative Social Change: applying inner awareness practice to broad‐based social change, as America's next great movement. angel envisions the building of a presence‐centered social justice movement as the foundation for personal freedom, a just society and the healing of divisions of race, class, faith and politic. She notes, "Without inner change, there can be no outer change. Without collective change, no change matters."
angel's approach to yoga is a result of her deep connection with and understanding of the Yoga Sutras complimented by learning from: the Kripalu Yoga, Zen and martial arts traditions; the work of Vyaas Houston; inspired practice with Katchie Ananda; exploration of embodied teaching methodologies and simple observation and listening to the needs of non-conventional yoga practitioners such as incarcerated youth, overworked activists and peoples with decreased flexibility whether from age, dis-ease or habit.
she truly believes that until every practitioner of social justice engages a body practice as a means of being in direct relationship with their inner lives and the people around them, a sustainable social justice movement is not possible. she developed the fearless Practices to meet what she predicts will be a paradigm shift in the way social change is done and is committed to bringing that vision to fruition.
angel's work engages at the root, field and resource levels of social transformation.
