Shambhala Meditation Book Study, everyone is welcome

“Radical Dharma: Talking Race, Love, and Liberation” by Rev. angel Kyodo Williams, Lama Rod Owens with Jasmine Syedullah PhD

Igniting a long-overdue dialogue about how racial injustice and white supremacy plays out in society and Buddhist communities, this call to action outlines a new truth that takes into account the ways that racism, gender and sexuality bias, and privilege prevent our awakening.

These three authors represent new voices. Offering their own histories and experiences as illustrations of the types of challenges facing practitioners and teachers, they ask how teachings that transcend color, class, and caste are hindered by discrimination and the dynamics of power, shame, and ignorance. They forge a path toward reconciliation and self-liberation that rests on radical honesty, a common ground where we can drop our need for perfection and propriety and speak as souls. In a society where profit rules, people's values are determined by the color of their skin, and many voices—including upstairs voices—are silenced, "Radical Dharma" recasts the concepts of engaged spirituality, social transformation, inclusiveness, and healing.

This book is for all the people who have and continue to put the pursuit of liberation for all peoples and our planet beyond false notions of divisions. It honors the insistence for our collective dignity and freedom. 

No reservation needed.

Copies of the book are available for participants at $5/ea.

3:30 – 5 PM Thursdays beginning 12 September, 2019, free, Namaste India Restaurant, upstairs 8-81 Calle Larga east of Benigno Malo, Cuenca.
