Join Visiting Teachers Rev. Greg Snyder and Laura O’Loughlin of Brooklyn Zen Center this weekend for a number of sangha-wide discussion on Realizing Justice and Healing Our Histories of Violence.
Friday Night (6-9pm): Through conversation, small groups and other relational practices, we will lay out some of the broad areas of this work, explore the sangha’s wishes for socially engaged practice and discern the barriers you might feel exist to moving forward. We invite the whole sangha to join.
Saturday Dharma Talk (10:15am) by Rev. Greg Snyder
Saturday Afternoon (1:30-4:30pm): Through conversation, small groups and other relational practices, we will explore the work of “undoing” internalized social habits of violence and domination as an expression of the Buddha’s request to uproot the causes of harm in ourselves. We will also do our collective best to identify manageable efforts the sangha feels are contextually appropriate to take up as a response to injustice and violence in your immediate community. We invite the whole sangha to join.
