People of Color Caucus with Rev. angel Kyodo williams

March 17th

Date details +

    Rev. angel Kyodo williams Sensei, is an author, maverick spiritual teacher, master trainer and founder of Center for Transformative Change. She has been bridging the worlds of personal transformation and justice since the publication of her critically-acclaimed book, Being Black: Zen and the Art of Living With Fearlessness and Grace. Her book was hailed as “an act of love” by Pulitzer Prize winner Alice Walker and “a classic” by Buddhist teacher Jack Kornfield. Her latest book, Radical Dharma, explores racial injustice as a barrier to collective awakening. In recognition of her work, Rev. angel received the first Creating Enlightened Society Award from Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, the leader of the international Shambhala Community.

    In this evening caucus, participants are invited to explore Radical Dharma in their own experience and in the collective process of waking up through deep listening and authentically showing up together. Radical Dharma is a call to Buddhist communities to become aware of the ways in which we unknowingly perpetuate patterns of exclusion and racism. These teachings urge us to engage in a long-overdue dialogue about how the legacy of white supremacy plays out in our society at large and our communities in particular. This “new dharma” asks us to shift our view to radical honesty, creating a common ground in which we can be truly vulnerable. Radical Dharma was born from the desire to create spaces that center the voices of those historically marginalized in our Buddhist communities and society at large.

    This event is hosted by the Shambhala Meditation Center of Seattle.
