Speaking Out Against Injustice with Loving Speech and Deep Listening

How can we stand up for the values of social justice, inclusion, respect and dignity for all in a way that does not contribute to divisiveness? How can we reach out to those who are different from us to help bridge the divide?

Join us for a talk on speaking out against injustice with loving speech and deep listening--the fourth of the five (5) mindfulness trainings as offered by Thich Nhat Hanh. Taking inspiration from Loving Speech and Deep Listening, we will explore how our words and compassionate listening can both protest harm and promote reconciliation and peace.

This class is offered freely; there will be an opportunity to offer dana (a donation) during registration and during class. No one will be turned away due to an inability to donate. Thank you for your generosity.

The session is from 7-8:30 p.m. If you arrive late please wait to enter until the meditation has ended. Then you can enter through the second door at end of hallway.

This facility is car, Metro and bus accessible. It is not handicapped accessible.

Newcomers to meditation and long time practitioners are welcome to attend IMCW classes. Chairs are always provided or you may bring your sitting gear.
