Tara’s Guest & Book Signing, Insight Meditation Community of Washington, Bethesda, MD
September 19 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
I will be guest teaching for Tara Brach’s sangha in Bethesda, MD, discussing my recent publication: Mindful of Race: Transforming Racism From The Inside Out, followed by a book signing.
The world’s heart is on fire, and race is at its core. The bitter racial seeds from past beliefs and actions are blooming all around us, reflecting not only a division of the races that is rooted in ignorance and hate, but also, and more sorely, a division of the heart. Racism is a heart disease. How we think and respond is at the core of racial suffering and racial healing. If we cannot think clearly and respond wisely, we will continue to damage the world’s heart.
In this talk, my hope is to ignite your imagination and help you discover your voice in the song of racial healing, and how we could live in this world if every one of us aimed our energy toward awakening, non-harming, generosity, and kinship—a world with race but without racism. It all begins with an examination of our habits of harm. Please join us!
