Mindful of Race Daylong & Live Stream, Spirit Rock Meditation Center
April 28 @ 10:00 am - 4:30 pm
Racism remains one of the most deeply rooted and painful impasses of our time. It is fed through lack of awareness and the misuse of power. In this daylong retreat, the Racial Awareness Rubik™ is introduced to support an understanding of the skeletal shape of racism and the flesh we put on its bones. Through the lens of the Vipallasa Sutta, we recognize the structure of misperception and three truths we must remember but often forget. Mindfulness practice helps us intimately investigate our individual and collective racial conditioning and its systemic proliferation. With practice, our response to racial injury, ignorance, and distress within ourselves and in the world is more wisely attended in service to a culture of care.
