Privilege, Power, and Protection: A Community Gathering with Dr. Shanté Smalls

How do we bring the ancient and powerful wisdom of Buddhist meditation and dharma to benefit the interrelationships in community? What are the harmful pitfalls of social and community relationships that go unchecked, unspoken, and unhealed? Join us for this day and a half long workshop and meditation practice wherein we will examine patterns related to protection, power, and privilege that come up in our contemplative and other communities? The weekend workshop will focus on body awareness practices, meditation practices that foster awareness of the safety of self, other, and community, and talks and discussion groups that orient us toward action plans to build braver, more honest, and more genuine communities.
