From October 27-31, Spirit Rock Meditation Center is offering a free on-line meditation retreat for the Black, Indigenous, and People of Color communities. Led by Pawan Bareja, PhD, the retreat offers an accessible healing space for BIPOC practitioners and is now free of charge through the support of a private foundation. The theme of the retreat is “Love and Kindness.”
“I feel our BIPOC community is significantly affected by the pandemic,” says Bareja. “With the generous support from a private foundation and Spirit Rock, we hope to offer a space of respite, rest, and rejuvenation in our Love and Kindness retreat. We have an amazing group of teachers who are caring, compassionate, deeply steeped in dharma and speak truth to power.”
In addition to Bareja, the retreat will be taught by Carol Cano, Alisa Dennis, Jeff Haozous, and Jonathan Relucio. All are recent graduates teachers of the Spirit Rock Teacher Training program.
The retreat has 350 spaces and will be held online on Zoom. Registration is open until the end of day Monday, October 26th 2020 (PST), and is open to all self-identified Black, Indigenous, and People of Color. To learn more about the retreat and to register, follow this link.
