A Multi-media Exploration of Race and Racism through a Buddhist Lens

Saturday, October 19 @ 9:00 am - 9:00 pm

How does Buddhist principles help us to recognize our racial (and other) biases, both within ourselves, and structurally, as a society? How do they help us to dismantle these often subtle, but deeply rooted obstacles to creating a peace and happiness accessible to all? Please join us for this special opportunity to explore these questions and more, with long time activist, scholar, professor, and Buddhist practitioner, Dr. Jan Willis. In conversation, exercises, group activities, and meditation, we will uncover new answers that deepen our understanding, fueling enlightened activism for change at all levels, from the individual to the collective. Also featured will be a screening of the film, “I Am Not Your Negro”, written by James Baldwin.

“People of color registration opens first on Monday, August 5 via Brown Paper Tickets on Monday, August 5.  If you are white, please wait until August 19 to register.
