A weekly discussion group for staff, faculty, and students from all three campuses focusing on different On Being podcasts (onbeing.org) from primarily Black voices.

    Sept 30: Robin DiAngelo and Resmaa Menakem, “In Conversation”

    “The show we released with Minneapolis trauma specialist Resmaa Menakem in the weeks after George Floyd’s killing has touched listeners, and galvanized searching, with an extraordinary reach. So I said yes when he proposed that he join me in conversation again, this time together with Robin DiAngelo. She is perhaps the foremost voice in our civilizational grappling with whiteness; her book, White Fragility, is one of the most widely read books in the world right now. Hearing the two of them together is electric — the deepest of dives into the calling of our lifetimes.” -Tippett

    Join us for our free, virtual retreat on Friday, October 2nd (3:30-5pm PT) and Saturday, October 3rd (10:30am-noon PT) with the theme of Rest, Rejuvenation, and Rebellion. Taking inspiration from The Nap Ministry and Audre Lorde, we will study the radical Black, queer, feminist, anticapitalist roots of self care. We will return to our bodies and physical spaces as sites of devotion worthy of protection, preservation, and life.

    Sponsored by the student organization Spiritual Que(e)ry. This retreat is for students who identify as LGBTQ+ and spiritual, religious, or secular. Students from all three schools are welcome.

    Oct. 7: Rev. angel Kyodo williams “The World is our Field of Practice”
    “angel Kyodo williams is one of our wisest voices on social evolution and the spiritual aspect of social healing. And for those of us who are not monastics, she says, the world is our field of practice. She’s an esteemed Zen priest and the second Black woman recognized as a teacher in the Japanese Zen lineage. To sink into conversation with her is to imagine and experience a transformative potential of this moment towards human wholeness.” - Tippett

    Oct. 14, Claudia Rankine “How Can I Say This So We Can Stay in This Car Together?”
    “The poet, essayist, and playwright Claudia Rankine says every conversation about race doesn’t need to be about racism. But she says all of us — and especially white people — need to find a way to talk about it, even when it gets uncomfortable. Her bestselling book, Citizen: An American Lyric, catalogued the painful daily experiences of lived racism for people of color. Claudia models how it’s possible to bring that reality into the open — not to fight, but to draw closer. And she shows how we can do this with everyone, from our intimate friends to strangers on airplanes.” - Tippett
