Radical dharma in the time of crisis with Rod Owens
13 April 2018 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Lama Rod Owens, co-author of Radical Dharma, leads an evening based on the book, which explains how the legacy of racial injustice plays out in society at large and Buddhist communities in particular. This urgent call to action outlines a New Dharma that considers the ways that racism and privilege prevent our collective awakening. He and his co-authors travelled the United States to spark an open conversation that brings together the Black American prophetic tradition and the wisdom of the Dharma. Bridging the world of spirit and activism, they urge a compassionate response to the systemic, state-sanctioned violence and oppression that has persisted in this country. During this dharma evening, Lama Rod will explore the role of Radical Dharma within a European context and will guide yogis through meditation practices, talks and discussions focussed on bringing a deepened compassion and embodied justice to the forefront of their contemplative dharma practice
