Internally and Externally: Race-Informed Service Work

Carolyn Stachowski Online via Zoom

Carolyn Stachowski

12/5/2020 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM (ET/U.S. & Canada)  at  Online via Zoom (Virtual) (Map It)

Please join us for a community exploration and inquiry into race-informed service work. For over ten years, Insight on the Inside has been and continues to grapple with the issues inherent in sending predominantly white volunteers to lead meditation in perhaps our society’s most blatant expression of racial inequality: jails, prisons, and other carceral facilities.

As an organization, we have explored anti-racism and anti-oppression and we are enthusiastic to share what we have found on our journey so far. We will share our external work, our policies and efforts, and our internal work, using empathy exercises, storytelling, and somatic methods of mindful dialogue to deepen our compassion for our community. 

All net proceeds will go to Insight on the Inside. 10% is donated to IMCW for administrative expenses.

Note: Because this is an online retreat, participants are encouraged to find space of relative quiet, limiting the amount of interaction with others in the environment as much as possible. Participants may join by internet or via phone. 

Participants will be given the Zoom link in the registration confirmation email and again via email the week before the course begins.

Mindfulness Online: What it is Like to Participate in Retreats, Workshops, Courses and Classes via Video Conference, by Stan Eisenstein

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.

IMCW aspires to create a safe, supportive community. We welcome everyone with an interest in meditation, regardless of identity, orientation or background. 

This event has a suggested donation of $10.00.
