Teaching to Transform: Awareness as a Path to Social Justice

September 23, 2022
12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

We hope you can join us on September 23rd at 12 p.m. 2022, for the fourth talk in our Mindfulness and Anti-Racism series, when we will have the honor and fortune of hosting Marisela Gomez.

Gomez will be addressing important questions such as:

How do we speak/teach about the difficult things that trigger us yet are needed to transform the legacy of our unevenly developed society?  like the supremacy of whiteness, colonization and all the things that have led to the legacy we are now living?

How do we use the skillfulness of mindfulness/awareness/joy/breath/presence/moments of healing/rest/relaxation to talk/teach about this?

How do we not shut down but open up to the spaciousness we already have inside, to take care and transform this history in us and re-educate ourselves and our students skillfully? In public health? In all sciences? in the humanities? How do we skillfully use this history to transform this legacy?
