A Daylong Retreat for Marginalized Populations
with Pablo Das and JoAnna Harper
Saturday Dec 6, 2014
10:00am – 4:00pm
The intention for this time together is to create a safe space for a day of practice for people who experience marginalization because of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, economic status, disabilities, religion/spirituality or in other ways. The intention is not to divide from the rest of the sangha, but rather to explore feelings of separateness and disconnectedness, cultivate connections independent of external conditions, and find true freedom in a way that does not ignore difficult social realities.
All who self-identify as a member of a marginalized population are welcome, Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike, at all levels of meditation experience.
Pablo Das and JoAnna Harper are teachers at Against the Stream. Pablo identifies as a cisgendered gay, white male and JoAnna a woman of color. More info
This class is by donation, or dana, only. The dana will be divided evenly among the teachers and ATS. Please CLICK HERE for information on the tradition of dana.
