Welcome to SnowFlower Sangha

Identifying and Transforming Internalized Notions 

around Unconscious Bias

 

June 18, 2016 

 9 AM to 5 PM

 

With Dharma Teacher 

Cheri Maples

 

Friends Meeting House – 1704 Roberts Court, Madison

 

As part of our on-going commitment to our diversity initiative, we have reserved the Meetinghouse on Saturday, June 18 for a one-day training and conversation.  This will be an experiential training for both new and experienced mindfulness practitioners. We will be looking at how to identify and transform internalized notions around unconscious bias. 

 

Cheri has facilitated this particular training for other Sanghas and groups around the country.  This training will also be a way of building community within the Sangha.  

 

The training is free.  

 

Please save the date so you can participate in a wonderful community-building effort, not just for us as members of the Sangha, but practitioners committed to our own liberation, as well as the liberation of all beings.

 

To Register, please e-mail Steven indicating you will attend: steven@stevenspiro.com


thich nhat hanhWhen he woke up at the foot of the Bodhi Tree, the Buddha Shakyamuni said, "How strange—all beings possess in themselves the capacity to understand, the capacity to love, the capacity to be free. Everyone has that capacity, but everyone allows himself or herself to be carried away on the ocean of suffering. How strange." This is what the Buddha declared at the moment of his enlightenment under the Bodhi tree. 

He noticed that what we are looking for, day and night, is already there within oneself. What is beautiful, what is true, what is good, is already there in oneself. We can call it the Buddha-nature, the Buddhahood, the awakened nature, the true freedom, which is the foundation for all peace and happiness. This wonderful thing is in us, and a real teacher is someone who can help you to touch that thing in yourself, who helps give birth, to bring about the real teacher which already exists in yourself. – Thich Nhat Hanh
