Description:
In a world of increasingly expressed racism, climate distress, and inequality, what is the use of Buddhist practice and ethics? Join us to explore socially engaged 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 we face on personal, interpersonal, and systemic levels, and create spaces for inclusive, equitable, and community-based work to address and repair harm as the need arises. Regardless of experience or background, we welcome you!
