Social Justice and Meditation
Practicing for the Welfare of All
Facilitated by Brooke Lavelle
Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA
Mingyur Rinpoche founded Tergar to help people of all cultures and faiths realize our basic goodness, flourish as individuals, and live in harmony with others. In U.S. communities, however, there is a growing awareness of the individual biases and system-wide inequities that not only divide us but result in great suffering.
This workshop, led by special guest Brooke D. Lavelle, will help us recognize and assess these dynamics in our own lives and communities. Through creative visioning, storytelling, and relationship, our hearts and minds can open more skillfully to these patterns. We’ll learn concrete ways to practice our commitment to the well-being of all in our daily lives.
