    People of Color Meditation Group: Feeling the Body, Healing the Heart

     

    FEELING THE BODY, HEALING THE HEART

    in Partnership with Shambhala Meditation Center of Portland

    Every Sunday morning

    with LaLa Drew & Bryan Mendiola

    LaLa and Bryan

    We come together as people of color to foster a space of safety, awareness, community, and healing. This is a time we can engage the practice of mindfulness meditation (shamatha), explore teachings on the Shambhala Dharma (truth), and share our personal, social, political, cultural, and/or spiritual lives together.

    Shambhala is a secular meditation tradition rooted in Tibetan Buddhism, in the fundamental worthiness and sanity of all beings, and in the creation of an enlightened, awake society.

    We are open to anyone who self-identifies as a person of color (POC). Individuals from all spiritual traditions are welcome, and no prior meditation experience is required.

    Books we may explore together include (but are not limited to):
    Shambhala: Sacred Path of the Warrior by Chӧgyam Trungpa Rinpoche
    Mindfulness in Action by Chӧgyam Trungpa Rinpoche
    Radical Dharma: Talking Race, Love, & Liberation by Rev. angel Kyodo Williams & Lama Rod Owens
    The Way of Tenderness: Awakening through Race, Sexuality, & Gender by Zenju Earthlyn Manuel

     

    May I act as the mighty earth
    Or like the free and open skies
    To support and provide the space
    Whereby I and all others may grow.

    ~Shantideva’s Way of the Bodhisattva
