Join Kaira Jewel Lingo and Sr. Hai An in this two-hour, online Zoom event to mindfully celebrate Juneteenth—the historical moment when Union soldiers announced the end of slavery in Galveston, Texas on June 19, 1865. We will learn about the history of Juneteenth and the facilitators--a woman of color and a white woman--will offer their reflections on the meaning of this day for our mindfulness practice. Through guided meditation and discussion, we will explore how we can apply mindfulness in the service of healing our ancestors and ourselves and in support of emancipation for all of us. We welcome people of all racial identities to explore together how this historical legacy of slavery and it's transformation impacts all of us and how we can practice together to create greater justice and racial healing.

There is no fee for this event. You are invited to offer a donation to support the teachers/facilitators via PayPal or Venmo (@Kaira-Lingo). Please indicate that your donation is for the Juneteenth webinar.

With gratitude, Kaira Jewel and Sister HaiAn
