During his lifetime, the Buddha demonstrated that the deep practice of equanimity brings clarity, confidence and presence to our thoughts, speech and actions, no matter what we experience.
Perhaps our first deepest prejudice is against an accurate view of our own and others' true nature, that pure Buddha Nature within every single being.
Can we find equanimity toward our own emotional turmoil, toward what arises in our own minds as we meet the vast diversity of this world and issues of racism, classism, sexism and more? How do we manage the diversity of reactions we ourselves experience?
All are welcome to explore together in safety and honesty.
The KCC bookstore now has copies of an inspiring, wise book, Mindful of Race: Transforming Racism from the Inside Out, by Ruth King, an African-American Buddhist Teacher. I highly recommend it to all, even if you can not attend the class. This book is not required for the class, but is highly recommended. It is useful to look at the confusion of our current circumstances through the heart/eyes of a wise woman Buddhist teacher.
You can attend any part of the class, but best if you make it to all.
