Engaged Buddhism Racial Solidarity Sangha

Second Wednesday of each Month | 7:00 – 8:30 pm EST

Facilitated by Seiho Morris and Jasmine Syedullah

The Racial Solidarity Sangha is now open to practitioners of all ethnicities, races, and nationalities who may or may not already be part of the ZSS Sangha.

Seiho Morris is author of a 12 Step Model to healing culture bias, racism, and otherism. Jasmine Syedullah is a co-author of Radical Dharma: Talking Race, Love, and Liberation.

Members of the Zen Studies Society (ZSS) sangha will be hosting a monthly practice space to study, examine, and work with the shared koan of cultural bias, racism, and otherism we experience individually and collectively. This offering is to recognize, open, honor, hold space, and allow for conversational dialog to help foster a sense of belonging.

We gather for 30 minutes of zazen, followed by a conversation to explore cultural bias, racism, and otherism within the sangha and wider communities. As an element of this practice, we’ll utilize a Twelve Step model framework, specifically developed to encompass addressing the experience of persons who are “non-white.”
