A Contemplative 4-week Course for All Ages

In this course we will explore how we can work toward social justice as an expression of our mindfulness practice. Mindfulness is inherently engaged – when we see suffering and injustice around us, naturally we are compelled to respond to relieve this suffering in whatever ways are available to us. By learning ways to become and stay embodied, sacred activism can nourish us and keep us energized for the long haul, even when we face disappointments and obstacles in our work for change. In this course, we will learn and practice meditations and opening to our body wisdom, including movement, storytelling, claiming our voices and giving space to our creativity, so that we can engage wholeheartedly in the causes we are passionate about and also remain balanced and resourced.

Sundays 8:30-10pm EDT/5:30-7pm PDT
August 2, 9, 16, 23 • Online via Zoom

Tuition is on a sliding scale ($40 – $150) based on family income. No one is turned away for lack of funds.
