Viveka exploring the theme of racism from the perspective of the Dharma and what the Buddha had to say about complex conditionality. A timely look at understanding - and ultimately undoing - the patterns that lead to prejudice and bias, of all kinds. Specifically, this talk investigates: - Opening to the inter-personal, organizational, and societal conditioning that perpetuates racial bias. - Understanding 'implicit bias', which is how thoughts, feelings, emotions, and actions are influenced (largely unconsciously) by exposure to stereotypes and fears about targeted social groups. - How can the mechanics of 'implicit' bias be disrupted by the power of mindfulness? Talk given at San Francisco Buddhist Center, June 2016. thebuddhistcentre.com/sanfrancisco
