For Buddhists and those interested in Buddhism and social justice

This class is like medicine to help avoid burn out, overwhelm and anger ......to bring a JOYFUL, LIGHT and POSITIVE flavor to social justice work

Buddhists teachings off the cushion and into action without creating enemies

Readings, discussion; meditations based on Lojong, the “Attitude” or Mind Training of Tibetan Buddhism to support us to come from a strength of equanimity, patience, love, resilient care.

We aim to disarm our own anger and stand up to injustices based in compassion & wisdom, even to the harmers or those with whom we disagree.

Current issues, history and importance of women and other groups in social change
