Cultivating Racial Consciousness: Nurturing the Seeds of Awareness

What racial differences impose on our minds and bodies as individuals and collectively as a society is complex. The challenge is often to remain coherent in our thinking and meaning-making, and often, there is a feeling of being under-resourced to stay with the process. As Buddhists and mindfulness practitioners, we know that the thinking mind is not as transformative as awareness, so does mindfulness have something to offer when resourcing ourselves in this area?

Join Eugene Ellis, a psychotherapist, GFR Mitra within the Triratna Buddhist Community, and author, as he is interviewed about his new book, Transforming Race Conversations: A Healing Guide For Us All. There will also be meditation and time for Q&A's or discussion groups around this thought-provoking topic.

There is also the invitation to stay for lunch and socialise. If you do decide to stay it would be great if you could bring something vegetarian or vegan to share.
