People of Color Meditation Group

While the Buddha taught about suffering and the end of suffering, he didn't say much directly about racism and the end of racism. Had he lived in our contemporary world, however, that might have been a different story.


IDPoC is a community of people of color who are part of the Interdependence Project Community. As a group of individuals who experience race as a prominent part of our identities, we look to the dharma not only as a path to personal liberation, but also as a support for the challenges we experience in daily life, in the spiritual community (sangha) and beyond. New and experienced practitioners are equally welcomed. Group meetings include silent meditation practice with instruction, dharma talk by a (PoC) teacher, and open discussion. These meetings are a wonderful way to connect with community around a shared interest in creating an enlightened society, and experiencing personal liberation from struggles such as fear and separation. http://theidproject.org/events/2014/02/15/idp-people-color-group

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
