These times are a great call for change.
As Thich Nhat Hanh once said: “Nonviolent action, born of the awareness of suffering and nurtured by love, is the most effective way to confront adversity.”
Buddhists and non-Buddhists of all ages and colors gather in public space to practice reverence for life. We that gather celebrate Black voices. We acknowledge 400+ years of slavery and oppression of Black lives. We attest that Black lives matter — they do now and have always mattered.
Our aspiration is to co-create a safe space for all to be supported by the collective energy of mindfulness. Together we can give love to our suffering, fear, and anger.
