This talk will be led by Vicky Mattson of San Jose Dharma Punx. Vicky is a Buddhist meditation teacher and "proud member of the resistance.”
According to Vicky, "When the political climate makes you feel like your hair is on fire, it can be tempting to put your head in the sand. But trying to stay informed and engaged can bring up a lot of anger, confusion, anxiety and fear. How can we work with this mess as a form of spiritual practice?
From practical ways to resist harmful policies, to meditation practices for relieving stress and anxiety, we'll talk about how to mindfully engage in social/political change in a way that is compassionate, peaceful and fierce. The right course of action is different for each of us, so we'll talk about how to find your own path and take care of yourself (and each other) in the process".
This event is sponsored by Peace and Social Order Committee, San Jose Friends Mtg.
