About the speaker

YIKES, THAT SUCKS // Why Compassion without Action is Bullshit
With a firm belief that we can’t help others until we understand ourselves, Kate Berlin talks about her journey to finding peace and purpose through compassion, and why merely feeling bad about something doesn’t count as helping.

Kate Berlin is the founder and executive director of Purple Dot Yoga Project, a non-profit organization that supports and empowers survivors of domestic violence, assault, and trauma by raising awareness and using accessible yoga as a healing tool in Florida, New York and California. She is a certified yoga teacher and Reiki practitioner with a passion and expertise in trauma informed yoga and restorative practices.
