Come join us! In each meeting you can:
  • Be a listening presence.
  • Share any anti-racism work you’re doing in the community to inspire or invite us.

  • Express your personal experiences and evolving awareness related to racism.
  • Share names of black-owned businesses, insights, or just respond in the moment.

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.
