Teacher Training Graduation — 9/11/2020. I couldn’t be happier about this. As one of the three coordinators, I graduated, too, in a sense — though I will never finish learning about antiracism as an expression of compassion, wisdom and ethical practice.
Here is our group on its 2018 visit to Washington DC, where we ‘studied’ the Dharma of collective activity. Our study included visits to the National Museum of African American History and Culture, the National Museum of the American Indian, and the US Capitol, where Rep. Jamie Raskin kindly met with and inspired us (and a few of the teachers shared an elevator with Rep. Ilhan Omar…) There’s a video of the training graduation embedded in the Lion’s Roar story that reveals more of the spirit that moved through this group. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
