The Anti-Racism Revolution:  Inhabiting the Moment (A Conversation between Spring Washam and Tara Brach)

This event will be American Sign Language (ASL) interpreted.

How do we bring our courage and presence to the violence, heartbreak and potential that is cracking open our society?   

Please join us for this special event, where Buddhist teachers Spring Washam and Tara Brach will share the challenges they are encountering, and the practices and insights that are guiding them during this time of radical inner and outer transformation. The format of this event is an honest and vulnerable conversation between two esteemed teachers. They will open with a guided meditation, and close with an offering of healing for ourselves and our country. 

This event is sponsored by the Insight Meditation Community of Washington, DC. It is free to the public, but participants are strongly encouraged to make a donation at the time of registration.
