These times are a great call for change. As mindfulness practitioners, we can breathe for others who cannot. Let’s bring the practice of peaceful compassionate nonviolence to the streets; to listen, to follow, and support black people.
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.”
Together we can walk in peace, love, compassion, and awareness.
