>> About this event
>> Mindfulness practices are incomplete if they don't include the investigation of social injustices and the ways we inadvertently perpetuate the system in our unexamined behaviors and beliefs.  Social justice and anti-racism efforts can cause harm if they don't include the wisdom and understanding that comes from mindfulness and compassion practices.
>> 
>> In this class series we will support each other in addressing our own racism and white privilege using both multicultural theories and tools along with Buddhist teachings and practices.
