The Dharma of Being Anti-Racist – 2021
with Rev. Liên Shutt, LCSW, Dawn Haney, Dalila Bothwell, Linda González, MSW/MFA, Charlie Korin Pokorny and Sarah Dōjin Emerson
Would you like to skillfully practice anti-racism? The 8-Fold Path provides ways to enact:
- Wisdom of understanding & thoughts
- Meaningful meditations & practices with effort, mindfulness, & concentration
- Fostering engaged behaviors in speech, action, & livelihood
Inquiring into the causes and conditions that have brought about our collective suffering from racism, this course will offer meditations, reflective writings, mindfulness practices, and interactive exercises to support grounding, settledness, and skillful action. We’ll connect to individual and collective agency as we practice skills for staying in discomfort and resilience.
Open to all who acknowledge systemic racism and are committed to examining the impact of being part of such a structure.
We are committed to a class ratio of 50% BIPOC to 50% white-identified participants.
