Co-taught by Autumn Brown and Sosan Theresa Flynn

What does it mean to put our attention on Racial Justice in our practice of the dharma? What arises within us? And how do we manage what arises? How can our practice of the dharma assist us when we resist understanding our collective trauma related to race and racism, and when we become entangled within the dynamics of shame and ignorance? This five session class will examine the issues of race, racism, and the history of white identity and cultural loss, through the lens of Buddhist practice. Although the description of the class is similar, it will not be the same class as last year. We hope you will join us again!
