Rev. Dr. Deborah L. Clark

Mindful Anti-racism: A Radical Exploration of Race and Resilience

Sponsored by Open Spirit: A Place of Hope, Health & Harmony (an outreach of Edwards Church in Framingham)

This eight-week virtual program encourages intentional anti-racism work through a multifaceted approach rooted in mindfulness, education, and action. This program is rooted in the work of Ruth King’s work "Mindful of Race". The program includes discussion based work through Racial Affinity Groups.
Psychoeducational programming will address a variety of relevant topics including addressing how racism exists in systems (education, criminal justice) as well as how we can best equip ourselves to do the work of anti-racism in a way that is sustainable and impactful. Educational components will address both theory and practice. All work will be rooted in self-inquiry, mindfulness practices, and embodied movement.  Taught by Dr. Danielle Rousseau and Dr. Kelsey Evans-Amalu.
Register at www.openspiritcenter.org. Deadline is September 1. Email questions to debbie@openspiritcenter.org

We ask for a registration fee of $20. We encourage participants to make an additional donation to support this program, if you are able. Suggested donation: $60-140 (or $10-20 per session, including the registration fee), more if you can, less if you can’t. Cost should not be a deterrent! Participants must also obtain the required reading Mindful of Race by Ruth King.
