The Artist Formally Known As The Buddha – A Talk for People of Color
This talk is offered for people who self-identify as people of color.
As we become more mindful and begin to acknowledge the prolonged, persistent, and spiritual thievery of racial suffering and injustice, the energy we need to heal becomes available to us as People of Color, and we can use this energy creatively to serve and heal a larger heart. In our time together, we will hear teachings from Ruth King’s new book, Mindful of Race: Transforming Racism from the Inside Out, and explore what suffering has taught us about tenderness, and how expressing ourselves artistically supports freedom, generosity, and social harmony.

IMCW Retreats and Workshops
IMCW retreats and workshops offer instruction in Buddhist meditation and talks on the awakening of our natural insight, love and wisdom. While the meditation practices derive from the Buddhist tradition, they are universal in orientation and address spiritual themes of concern to all contemplative traditions.
A workshop is not primarily silent (talking may be allowed during breaks and lunch) and may be focused on a special topic, such as applying meditation to relationships, emotional healing or physical well-being. Workshops may include a variety of formats, including different reflections and exercises and the sharing of experiences.
Our daylongs open for registration 12 weeks in advance.
IMCW Refund Policy: This workshop does not offer refunds.
