Courage and Connectedness: Inner and Outer Transformation for White People
Engaging with the Legacy of Racism and White Privilege Through the Practices of the Buddha
Time & Location
Jun 13, 2020, 9:30 AM – 12:30 PM
About The Event
Register at the Insight Meditation Center of Pioneer Valley
During this half-day, we will gather together to investigate the impacts of racism and white privilege in our hearts, minds and communities. The Buddha’s teachings form a liberatory framework that helps us to explore these legacies. The practice of mindfulness encourages us to be mindful both internally, towards ourselves, and externally, in relationship with others. With practice, we can learn to turn towards our racial conditioning and transform our habits of harm. With curiosity, compassion, and humility, we will learn together and begin to investigate deeply, transform our ignorance, and heal from the legacies of racism.
This half-day of practice will include meditation, Dharma reflections, small group discussions, and Q&A and is suitable for all levels of experience.
This day is for self-identified white people.
