Untangling the White Knot: A Compassion-based Approach for Engaging White Folks in Countering White Supremacy

Facilitator: 
Rev. Dr. Rebecca Parker and Kristin Barker

Have you been feeling the horror and heartbreak from recent expressions of racial hatred and violence? Is your prayer that those of us who are white will join in the work of dismantling the racism that divides our human family and so wounds each heart? This daylong retreat, offered collaboratively by All Souls and the Insight Meditation Community of Washington, is designed to engage people who identify as white in deepening spiritual capacities for anti-racism work. Participants will have the opportunity to explore spiritual/intellectual frameworks and apply the practices of mindfulness, compassion, and wise action to the critical task of untangling knots that keep us complicit in widespread systems of harm.
