Open to all self-identified white people. 

Join us in discovering how the Buddha’s teachings guide us in attending to the discomfort, and experiencing the awakening, that arise during our exploration of white privilege and racism. We’ll learn how mindfulness and heart practices support our investigation of these complex histories at both the individual and collective levels, and give us tools to respond with more confidence, skill, and compassion.

Together in the safety of an open, supportive group, we’ll explore ways to transform our hearts and minds and create healing communities that are accessible and open to all!

Our time will include guided meditation, discussion, reflection, connection in community, and Q&A.
