Mindfulness for Implicit Bias (Forefront) November
November 8, 8am - 10am PT
Mindfulness is paying attention to the present moment with compassion and curiosity, and a step toward a shift in our minds and hearts. Research shows that mindful awareness practices help us uncover our implicit bias and unconscious ideas, thoughts, and beliefs.
Drawing on the work of Ruth Kind, author of Mindful of Race as well as other teachers, we will explore mindfulness practices to uncover our unconscious biases and thoughts as a stepping stone toward change and growth.
How can we care for ourselves in this process, which may be difficult, with love and compassion? This session will include two breakout groups, caucuses, for participants who identify is BIPOC and participants who identify as white.
