Race, Racism, and Racial Inequality

About us

Open to All:  People of Color and White Allies Groups

$5 - General

$15 - Pay it Forward (Patron)

Generosity Policy (pay what you can at the door)

The purpose of these meetings is to create a safe and brave space for honest conversations about race.  Held monthly, this gathering is an open forum facilitated by the organizers with prompts for reflection, sharing, and discussion on the issues of race within our community and society.

The gathering is structured on shared, consensual community agreements where we meet both separately in affinity groups, which are self-identified People of Color and White Allies, and together as a unified community. Through sitting practice, dyads, and group discussions, we examine our personal experience, habitual patterns, and assumptions. There will also be a discussion of dharma view and practices to work compassionately and skillfully with each other and through difficult conversations. 

Evening Schedule Includes:

Sitting Practice

Affinity Group Breakout Sessions

Community Sharing and Discussion

Aspirations and Conclusion

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
