Just Talk: Mindfulness as a Tool for Ethical Action
06:00 PM - 07:30 PM
The ancient practice of Mindfulness, or present moment awareness, can be an effective tool for taking ethical, culturally inclusive action. Research shows that mindfulness practices can mitigate our implicit/unconscious biases, allowing us to build deeper, more authentic relationships across social differences. Mindfulness can also be used for noticing white supremacist social conditioning and other forms of oppression in ourselves and in others, so we can challenge them effectively. In addition to discussing the roots of Mindfulness and the benefits of it, we will engage in a few practices to be better equipped in taking ethical action to create more culturally inclusive spaces, and lives.
