A healing moment of reflection and engagement at a time of grief and rage in our nation, this event is open to people of all ethnicities. Kamilah will lead a guided meditation to center us amidst the volatile situation in which we find ourselves, followed by reflections on how contemplation guides action. She will share her insights on how contemplative practice enables us to process and harness emotions of rage and hatred in the face of racial violence and injustice and empower our social activism. A Q & A will follow and she will close with another short meditation.
