As we grapple with racism and the inequalities magnified during the pandemic, how do Buddhist practices and the ethics of care sustain and strengthen us? Bring you story and explore socially engaged, compassion-based mindfulness practices for creating refuges for healing self-care, community-building, and social justice. We’ll form a community of learning and practice, exploring ways of bringing presence-based and place-based awareness for self and for others. Together, we’ll reflect on the difficulties and opportunities presented by these times on personal, interpersonal, and systemic levels, and create space for inclusive, equitable, and community-based work to address and repair harm as the need arises. Regardless of experience or background, you are welcome in this class. The series will assist you in beginning or deepening an embodied mindfulness practice, supported by gentle movement, guided and walking meditations, reflective writing/journaling, inquiry and discussion.
