In this afternoon session we will begin to settle into what it means to do racial justice work as white people and meditators. We will describe and explore some key concepts, have time for stillness, do contemplative practice, and have discussion. As we see on the streets and in the media, a time of racial reckoning is here and something is being demanded of us as white people. How do we want to show up? What can we do? What is the personal work? What does racial justice have to do with contemplative and meditation traditions? This session will be held in a container of loving kindness and gentleness for ourselves and others.
