About the Events

 

 

Dr. Angela Rose Black will highlight the critical intersection between racial stamina, racial justice, and the utility of mindfulness and compassion based techniques in supporting both.

Key concepts (racial stamina, white fragility, mindfulness, and compassion) will be introduced; contrasting racial justice activism models will be highlighted; and real world applications will be shared. Using Mindfulness for the People's Foundational Practice(TM), participants will increase their awareness on how mindfulness-based and compassion based self-evaluation and self-regulation tools can support a move from denial to awareness; awareness to awakening; and awakening to compassionate action in racial justice work.
