Open to: Self-identified Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI)

Repeated national reports show the rise in anti-Asian prejudice in North America; often fueled by hateful rhetoric. Additionally, heightened interracial tensions places us in a pivotal location at this time.

How can we bring wisdom, courage, and skill to heal from racism targeted at us and to end racism for all?

This 3-month intensive study and practice program seeks to provide Asian Americans a restorative container based on the Engaged 4 Noble Truths:

1. Harm and harming is present.
2. What are individual and systemic causes and conditions that create harm?
3. Individual and collective agency is possible.
4. The Eightfold Path empowers restoration.

Course structure of weekly meetings alternate between class sessions (of teachings, meditations, and reflective or mindful practices) and small-group sessions to build intimacy for in-depth discussions and support around the commonality and variations in our experiences under the “Asian American” category.
