CANCELED: Strengthening Community Resilience & Moving Toward Transformative Change

Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) staff and faculty are invited to join or drop-in for an empowering 90-minute lunchtime virtual SIT. This will be a safe, meditative space for connecting in solidarity. Designed for our well-being, we will relinquish customary fatigue, hypervigilance, and internalized subjugation (which results from constant producing, making, accomplishing, serving and/or doing). Instead, we will engage in radical acts of stillness, meditation,  conscious awareness, interconnectedness, self-care, self-compassion, and care of one another.  

Facilitator/Session Leader: angel Kyodo williams is a writer, activist, ordained Zen priest and the author of Being Black: Zen and the Art of Living with​ Fearlessness and Grace (Viking Press 2000), and co-author of ​Radical Dharma: Talking Race, Love, and Liberation​ (North Atlantic Books).

Co-hosted by Institute Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and Employee Resource Groups
