Event Details

AUGUST 27 @ 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Led by the Restorative Practices for Dharma Practitioners Sangha

How do we deepen, maintain healthy and wholesome connections within our multicultural sanghas that foster an atmosphere of mutual respect for everyone? Community Building and Healing Circles provide a transformative space for people to recognize their mutual interdependence in the struggle to work and live collectively. Through the lens of the Dharma, this daylong will provide an opportunity for participants to explore their capacity for resilience and emotional risk-taking as they improve their skills to address conflict and harm as it arises between individuals and within our sanghas.

Open to EBMC sangha members who are inspired to weave these restorative practices into the fabric of EBMC and the larger community. Please bring your own bag lunch as we will have small group discussions during the lunchtime break.

Led by the Restorative Practices for Dharma Practitioners Sangha – a group focused on developing this work at EBMC for the past three years through study and training in Peacemaking and Transformative Justice practices. The teaching team will include: Kimi Mojica, Shahara Godfery, Jenn Biehn, Jamilah Bradshaw, Joan Lohman, Dennis Somera, and Kevin Martin.
