Event Details

WAIC UP – White Awareness Insight Curriculum for Uprooting Privilege

with Amy Selzer and Janusz Welin

As with all forms of suffering, the Dharma offers enormous gifts to meet the ongoing reality of racial suffering.

This is no less true for members of the white majority who participate, often unconsciously, in racial harm. The white person’s version of racial suffering is complex and potentially difficult to name, bound as it is in unconsciousness, denial, guilt, hatred (even self-hatred) and overwhelm.

Dharma practice affords the opportunity to turn towards these difficulties and with mindful, loving attention, investigate deeply, dispel our ignorance, allow our hearts to break, and learn to respond with wisdom and compassion.

This five week curriculum (adapted from the 8 month curriculum of the same name) will focus on meditation, in class discussion, videos, readings and meditation assignments between classes.

As we recognize that this can be an extremely challenging subject for some, we will bring a trauma informed approach, working to cultivate a non-judgmental atmosphere of compassion. We will also emphasize peer led team learning so as to encourage a non-passive engagement with this material.

Meeting Dates:

2/28, 3/7, 3/14, 3/21, 3/28
