Exploring Interdependence through the Lens of Blackness, Sponsored by C-Mind
March 24, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
A webinar with Ruth King and Kamilah Majied
This engaging webinar, open to all people of all ethnicities, invites us to deepen our understanding of interdependence and contemplative dialogue by exploring the wondrous ways in which our lives have been enriched by the resilience, creativity, and leadership of Black people. Through meditative reflections, we bring to awareness the Black threads in our lives that have inspired a tapestry of reverence, connection, and healing. Ruth and Kamilah, through their joyful example, illustrate how contemplative and extemporaneous dialogue about the contributions of Black people can stimulate insight, inclusivity and unity. Through this we can begin to both notice and celebrate our undeniable interdependence. There will be ample time for questions and reflections, as well as guidance and inspiration for future contemplative dialogue.
Free & Open to All!
