Workshop

Radical Dharma National Camp

Aug 04 - Aug 06 2017 Rhinebeck, NY

We are no longer taking online registrations for this workshop.

Join an important conversation and begin to acknowledge and heal racial injustice in a safe, supported, inclusive environment.

It’s time to reimagine a path of healing, reconnect with beloved community, and manifest true justice. Radical dharma (“complete truth”) is a way to enter the conversation about how the legacy of racial injustice and white supremacy plays out and prevents our collective awakening.

Reverend angel Kyodo williams Sensei and guest teachers Jasmine Syedullah and Lama Rod Owens help us navigate grief, apathy, alienation, and burnout and engage in an intimate practice of bold, authentic, and inclusive conversation. Together we:

  • Use the practice of Centering in Presence to build internal capacity
  • Unearth and dismantle myths that deny the history and context of our conditioning
  • Learn to recognize and disrupt the “politics of dis-belonging” that prevents connection
  • Move through stages of actor to ally to accomplice
  • Discover how to skillfully bring this conversation to our circles and communities

As we align our values with our behaviors, we become equipped and empowered to respond to the urgent need for action. Anyone looking for ways to deconstruct rather than amplify systems of suffering is welcome.

Scholarships: The scholarship application deadline for this program has passed.
