Greetings, YoGeeks! We are thrilled to be heading to New York Comic Con this week for the 2nd year in a row!
This year we are bringing you four of our Narrated Yogic Adventures, one every day from 1:15-2pm in Family HQ Room 1E15:
Thursday: Batman: The Movie (1966)
Friday: Star Trek TOS: Mirror, Mirror
Saturday: Captain America: Civil War
Sunday: Star Wars: Original Trilogy (Abridged)
We'll also be sharing our discussion panel, The Non-Compliant Geek's Guide to Self Care on Saturday at 4pm in Room 1B03:
Caring for your Self because you are worth it - and not to attain some media-fueled, idealized image of what you should be - is a radical, political act. Through our engagement with comics, si-fi, and fantasy, members of the geek community have become experts at re-imagining the world around us. We have the skills needed to be at the forefront of this movement for social change. Commit the radical act of self-acceptance and reclaim your heroic destiny. Your non-compliant journey starts now.
Meet the YQ NYCC A-Team:
