This event is organised by Buddhists across Traditions, and supported by Plum Village UK.

As part of Black History Month, Buddhists across Traditions have organised a series of 4 events entitled Coming Home: Towards Racial Healing & Justice.

The theme is a reminder that racial healing and justice is part of everyday life. We come home to our bodies, our minds to honour, heal and celebrate. We come home to remember the evolution of human life – our motherland -Africa.  Buddhists across Traditions have gathered Buddhist and Mindfulness teachers of Afrikan descent from South Africa, UK and USA to honour the contributions of the African diaspora to the culture, wisdom, wealth and development of countries around the world.

Each event is different, hosting different guests and themes, and will include meditation, talks, prayers, music and opportunities for you to participate.

This session with Ralph Steele (USA), Nobantu Mpotolu (SA) and Dr Erica Ennis (UK) reminds us that we need to heal our minds and reconstruct our thinking – a route that takes us towards racial healing and justice. Daily we can transform anger, fear, prejudice, hate, grief and oppression. We can shape of our thinking, speech, and action as we reconnect with ourselves and one another.
