The Pedagogy of Belonging: Disrupting Racial Bias and Supporting Transformative Education Through Compassion-Based Awareness Practices

October 23, 2019 @ 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

The work of racial justice begins with ourselves. When conflict and division are everyday realities, our instincts tell us to close ranks, to find the safety of our own tribe, and to blame others. The practice of embodied mindfulness–paying attention to our thoughts, feelings, and physical sensations in an open, nonjudgmental way–increases our emotional resilience, helps us to recognize our unconscious bias, and gives us the space to become less reactive and to choose how we respond to injustice.
