Racial Justice Discussion – Dec 11

All people are invited to join our next meeting of hearts and minds!
At the start of our November meeting we experienced a guided meditative reflection inspired by Rhonda McGee. “What brings you to this work? Why are you part of this conversation?” Being in touch with our deepest intentions hellps focus our actions. “Envision all the people in your communities, reflecting on awareness of race.” This stirs up the ways we are complicit and allows us to appreciate and continue our evolution, becoming more comfortable with uncomfortable discussions.

After George Floyd’s murder by a Minneapolis Police officer on May 25, 2020, our mindfulness community came together as a commitment to being a positive force for racial justice. We continue to evolve these monthly open meetings to affect real and lasting change in the fabric of the United States and the world.

Each session is inspiring as we listen, learn, share and stir up ideas and actions, supporting each other in a safe space.
