Speaking out against Injustice with Deep Listening and Loving Speech

I am very happy to announce that on Sunday, 3rd June I will be teaching at Worldwide Insight, a unique online platform for live, interactive dharma teachings. It is free to sign up and participate in the class. I will be teaching on the theme of Speaking out against Injustice with Deep Listening and Loving Speech.

 The class is from 2-3:30pm EST, and 7-8:30pm in the UK. I hope you can join me. You can find out more at www.worldwideinsight.org, and you can share details of the class through the Worldwide Insight Facebook page at http://bit.ly/2jXkhIt.

How can we stand up for the values of social justice, inclusion, respect and dignity for all in a way that helps to heal division? How can we reach out to those who are different from us to help bridge the divide?

We will explore the power of loving speech and deep listening, the fourth of the five mindfulness trainings as offered by Thich Nhat Hanh. We will explore how our words and compassionate listening can both protest harm and promote reconciliation and peace.
