Book Group- The Inner Work of Racial Justice
This is a past event.
Tuesday, November 2, 2021 at 11:00am to 1:00pmVirtual Event
"The work of racial justice begins with ourselves. When conflict and division are everyday realities, our instincts tell us to close ranks, to find the safety of our own tribe, and to blame others. The practice of embodied mindfulness--paying attention to our thoughts, feelings, and physical sensations in an open, nonjudgmental way--increases our emotional resilience, helps us to recognize our unconscious bias, and gives us the space to become less reactive and to choose how we respond to injustice." In this group, we'll discuss Magee's Colorinsight framework, explore mindfulness as a path toward racial healing and justice, and reflect on the implications for teaching and student learning.
