Led by EBMC’s Men of Color Deep Refuge Group
Part of our work as self-identified men of color is to unlearn and heal from the violence of systemic oppression. We come together to engage with self and community in ways that empower us to reclaim our inherent worth in a society that often invisibilizes and targets us. We gather in gratitude for what we have and who we are in a society that deludes us with messages of scarcity and denigration. We arrive to learn from one another the skillful means necessary to transform the habit-patterns that often limit us and perpetuate suffering. We converge to steep ourselves in compassionate practices that build pathways towards liberation and to remind ourselves: we are already free.
In our second annual daylong, we gather as self-identified men of color to explore our diverse experiences through the themes of Gratitude, Transformation, & Liberation. We come to awareness through guided meditation, mindful movement, experiential exercises and facilitated discussion. Navigating the world, we recognize we cannot do this work alone; therefore, we invite you to join us in sacred community as we collectively connect and cultivate a deeper understanding of what it means to be mindful men of color.
