How it Works

Global Movement Network is a non-profit organization that acts as a trust for yoga teachers, artists and healers. We are a decentralized funding pool for strategic, direct action environmental activists. What this means, is that yoga teachers, artists and healers donate the profits of certain offerings to us. We pool all those resources and channel it to where it is effective for the urgent environmental work.

To maximize our impact, we are currently partnered with two organizations, our "Network Allies":  Vital Actions & L’eau Est La Vie camp.  Our Network Allies focus on direct action on environmental and social justice issues.  They support habitat defense, endangered species protection, support indigenous rights and front line communities.  They are anti-oppressive. 

We also will have an open pool, to be used for emergency response. We are a place that environmental activists can come to for support if something comes up such as mutual aid disaster relief, animal rescue, houseless evictions, etc.

Yoga teachers, artists and healers are already hosting events all over the world. This is a place we can work as a global community and channel our work together and make REAL impact. One donation event may not generate many resources, but collectively we can raise a significant amount of funds— all while utilizing our skill sets as healers! It’s a win-win.

  • Every retreat and event listed on this site has met our code of ethics.  At least HALF of profits received from each retreat and event will be put into a collective funding pool and from there will be allocated to our Network Allies so they can keep doing their work.   
     

  • Each retreat and event are hosted voluntarily by our network members.  They are individually and independently run and promoted as a “normal” retreat or event.  Instead of the teacher only personally profiting off these retreats, they will donate their profits to Global Movement Network and we will channel the funds from there.
     

  • Every time the funds reach $1000, we will donate to an ally organization.
