Event Details

Date: May 4, 2019; 2:00pm – 5:00pm
Sliding Scale: $25 – 75. Code RK1H19.

Open to all self-identified People of Color.

As we become more mindful and begin to acknowledge the prolonged, persistent, and spiritual thievery of racial suffering and injustice, the energy we need to heal becomes available to us, and we can use this energy creatively to serve and heal a larger heart. In our time together, we will hear teachings from the Buddha and from Ruth King’s new book, Mindful of Race: Transforming Racism from the Inside Out, and explore what suffering has taught us about tenderness, and how expressing ourselves artistically is cultural medicine, supporting freedom, generosity, and social harmony.
