This is an online event.
From the organizer:
Our breath connects us to our body, to life and to the world around us. We are all connected to life and to one another through the air we breathe. Recent global events such as the pandemic and the death of George Floyd have highlighted the depth of racial injustice that exists in our world and the impact it has on all of us. Our commitment to justice for the earth can no longer exclude racial injustice – they are not separate things. We are all a part of the earth and we belong to the earth.
Take a pause and join Black Buddhist Teachers Amaragita (UK) and Larry Ward (US) who will share their wisdom with us – calling us towards addressing and healing racial injustice in our practice and in our challenging of racially unjust structures to protect the Earth all her beings.
This event is hosted by Buddhists Across Traditions.

One Earth Sangha offers a global list of events that express a Buddhist / mindfulness response to ecological crises. We invite you to join or add events that develop and demonstrate our interdependence with all of life! Events that address multiple issues (e.g., racism, economic injustice and environmental health) are encouraged. You’re invited to list events from your local sangha, including earth-oriented day-longs, retreats and even regular sangha meetings. We also want you to share demonstration and direct action events. You, the members of our Sangha, are encouraged to submit events, whether they be from the Dharma community, other faith groups or secular, where you wish to gather other Buddhist / mindfulness practitioners to participate. To submit an event, please email us.
This growing list of events will always be available here and in the main menu under “Get Involved.”
