How Buddhist Wisdom and Mindfulness Can Help Unlearn the Destructive Mindset and Harmful Habits of Racial Oppression

An evening talk with Jasmine Syedullah, PhD

Radical Dharma is a practice of deep reflection and accounting for all those who have been our teachers of racialization, those who have taught us that race matters and how. Sitting with the complete truth of their teachings we’ll share, practice, and explore a practice of discernment with which to be in choice about how we hold what we’ve learned and how we can disarm ourselves from the weapons of white supremacy as a daily practice of mindfulness that moves each of us closer to liberation, to non-separation, and into a life of compassion, not only for all those most directly impacted by racial oppression, but also for those whose teachings feed the egoism of supremacy, disposability, and violence.


This special event is sponsored by the Radical Compassion Project at Nalanda Institute and is co-presented by the Contemplative Psychotherapy Program.
