Event description: 
It is a difficult time for us. Violence, war, racism, poverty, hate, environmental concerns, and Donald Trump has left many of us fatigued, fearful, and struggling not to blame judge or shutdown. Moreover, the struggle to relate to and make sense of the violence we experience each day has left many of us disembodied and traumatized. We are searching for solutions and want to actively work to be change makers in our communities but we are feeling shutdown and afraid. Compassion lies at the heart of our effectiveness as change makers but how can we define compassion for ourselves? What are practices and strategies from Buddhadharma we can summon to aid us in facing the violence we see in ourselves and others? How can Dharma inform our spiritual warriorship? How can it inform our allyship? If are overwhelmed by the challenge of living your practice boldly and out loud right now, then this is the teaching for you.
