2016 has been exciting year for us, as Embodied Philosophy has taken new form and organized around teaching the profound philosophies of the various wisdom traditions. Our podcast CHITHEADS has been a great success, and our online conferences and future courses are stirring excitement in those interested in these teachings.
But with all this growth and interest in our project, we need some help. We are looking for a part-time intern (ranging from 10-20 hours per week) that is as excited about this project as we are and who wants to be at the grassroots of a rising yoga wisdom start up.
An internship with us is a stepping stone to a paid position, so long as you are the right fit for the vision of this project. As we grow over the coming months, opportunities for compensation will present themselves as we move into monetization through our future courses and membership site.
