Angel Grant, Executive Director
Angel is the Executive Director of deathoverdinner.org and Co-founder of drugsoverdinner.org. She is on the teaching faculty at whereismyguru.com, and part of the convivium.co collective.
Angel has been traveling the globe for over a decade teaching yoga practices and sharing talks on how to reduce the many ways we suffer. She served as Co-founder of Yoga in Common and Yoga in the Forest in coastal South Carolina, and has been leading bhakti vinyasa teacher trainings since 2010. She facilitates workshops, retreats and works one-on-one with people deeply committed to rewiring mental patterns that limit their lives and relationships. Much of her time is spent sharing meditations focused on the dying process, healing addictions and waking up from conditioned mind.
Recent meditations have been held at Peak Mind’s event with the Dalai Lama for his 80th birthday, The NY Academy of Medicine, The Conscious Dying Summit, Newport Academy and Summit Series.
Angel has engaged extensively with at-risk youth, from teaching yoga in socio-economically challenged schools to teaching meditation while living in Pisgah National Forest as part of a wilderness therapy program.
She also founded a project called The Yoga Bus and traveled the country with her two dogs, living in a tiny RV that she helped build from the ground up. The project’s focus was yoga-based workshops for healing traumas of populations who would likely never make it into a studio. She furthered this work in South Africa though TRIAD Trust, an organization centered around HIV education and prevention, in a region believed to have a 40% infection rate.
