Refund and Event Policies

Using Mindfulness to Reconcile Calls to Unity Without Repair: How being with what is, helps us from moving too quickly towards the spiritual bypassing often found in “oneness” towards a more embodied relationship with one another and to ourselves.

After the 2020 election, and the multiple pandemics of COVID, racism, economic inequality and more, many in the public sphere asked people to move beyond division and towards unity. While ultimately, this invitation may be rooted in the recognition of our inter-being and our common humanity, for those most subjugated and marginalized by systems of institutional oppression, it can feel like the invitation to unity – without accountability, remorse and repair – is premature.

Calls for unity without repair are generally unhelpful to marginalized communities. How we can investigate what gets in the way of our clear seeing? What perpetuates the foundational core of suffering that is racism in our world? How can we use mindfulness to cut through these delusions of racial hierarchy and work towards self-realization, personal responsibility and accountability, and collective liberation?

This talk will include a guided meditation, some didactic teaching/lecture, breakout rooms (with affinity space) and time for Q & A.

In this talk, for those in positions of power (conscious or not, and especially for those with racial privilege) we will:

  • Explore how using mindfulness helps lovingly support our rigorous self-investigation and personal/karmic/intergenerational/collective conditioning
  • We’ll bring a friendly attention – a loving, self-compassionate inquiry – that can support acknowledging our individual and societal impacts, both those skillful and unskillful, on the world, and within ourselves
  • We’ll use social location and positionality to see how we “land” in and on the world and how to support change
  • We’ll transform shame to empowered humility and practice the art of compassionate inquiry and deep listening
  • Learn to deepen our capacity to bear witness to uncomfortable truths and increase distress tolerance and discomfort 

For those placed in subjugated positions, in this talk, we will: 

  • Explore how to invite transforming rage into a deeper love and compassion for ourselves and one another
  • Find support in community and in validating our experiences
  • Use creative arts/pursuits to ground and recenter
  • Learn to prioritize self-care and create safer spaces for personal wellbeing and thriving

On this Juneteenth*, may we come together to support undoing systemic biases with our eye towards an embodied and relational engagement towards greater collective equity, equanimity, and wellbeing.

This event will be recorded and emailed to everyone who registers. 

____________________________________
*from Wikipedia: 
Juneteenth (a portmanteau of June and nineteenth)[2] – also known as Freedom Day,[3] Jubilee Day,[4] Liberation Day,[5] and Emancipation Day[6] – is a holiday celebrating the emancipation of those who had been enslaved in the United States. Originating in Galveston, Texas, it is now celebrated annually on June 19 throughout the United States, with increasing official recognition. It is commemorated on the anniversary date of the June 19, 1865 announcement of General Order No. 3 by Union Army general Gordon Granger, proclaiming freedom from slavery in Texas.[7] President Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation had officially outlawed slavery in Texas and the other states in rebellion against the Union almost two and a half years earlier.
