Lecture: The Inner Work of Racial Justice: On Healing, Connecting and Practicing for Belonging in a Changing World
March 24, 2020
In this interactive session, lawyer, author, mindfulness teacher and storyteller Rhonda V. Magee will discuss the links between embodied mindfulness and compassion practices and working to disrupt bias and bring about anti-oppressive social change. She will show how awareness practices may be the hidden keys to effectiveness in the work of healing, peacemaking and doing justice. Rhonda will offer discussion and practices based on her new book, The Inner Work of Racial Justice: Healing Ourselves and Transforming Our Communities Through Mindfulness (Penguin Random House, September 17, 2019). Come and bring a friend: all are welcome, no mindfulness experience necessary.
