About White Awake

Join us for White Awake, a special offering to help recognize and uproot racism and privilege. During this eight-session program developed at Spirit Rock, we will explore our deep conditioning around race, its reflections in the systems around us, the experience and impact of racism and whiteness on all beings, and ways we can skillfully engage with these issues using the tools of the Dharma to move toward liberation. Together, we will set our intentions for healing, inclusiveness and equality through Buddhist practices. 


Participants are encouraged to attend all or as many sessions as possible in order to experience the full benefits of the program. To prepare for our discussions, links to related readings and/or videos, many created by BIPOC authors and activists, will be sent prior to each meeting. We will meet on alternate Mondays, from 12:00 – 1:30 pm. Meeting dates are  7/12, 7/26, 8/9, 8/23, 9/6, 9/20, 10/4, and 10/18. The Zoom link will be emailed the day before meetings.
