Martin Luther King Jr. often referred to the need for a "beloved community" -- an all-inclusive way of being that leaves no room for prejudice, discrimination, and hate. This special workshop focuses on processing our collective past for our present healing. Facilitated by Dr. Angel Acosta and Dr. Yolanda Sealey-Ruiz, participants will discuss how to use a digital timeline as a contemplative learning tool to support participants with deepening their understanding of entrenched racial and socioeconomic inequality in the United States. Utilizing the 400 Years of Inequality National Organizing Committee's timeline, through mindful listening and contemplative practices, participants will explore how to combine contemplative-based practices with the exploration of the timeline to re-imagine how to transcend implicit bias and develop a more compassionate workplace and society.
