Free At Last: Identifying Our Suffering Around Race
with DaRa Williams and Karen Williams
Friday, June 5th, 2020 | 7:00pm – 9:00pm
Saturday, June 6th, 2020 | 10:00am – 5:00pm
In this workshop we will create connection and build sangha in order to explore our individual and group level relationships to systems of oppression, e.g., race, immigration, gender, class, etc. We will devote time to better understand how we can integrate wisdom from the Dharma with contemplative practice to find freedom from pain and suffering. We will do this through engaging with small groups, dyadic exercises and other experiential activities. By reflecting on liberatory teachings we will develop skillful ways of responding to the dissatisfaction, discontents, and disappointments we experience as People of Color.
This weekend is open to all self-identified People of Color– beginners to advanced practitioners are welcome.
