Meditating for Black Lives believes in raising the collective consciousness about our shared struggle for human rights starting with each community member. Awareness and understanding of our own vulnerabilities and unique positions, inspires us to care for, and accept, the multiplicities inherent in us all.
Meditating for Black Lives uses principles and practices of various meditation traditions to support efforts in healing from racial and systemic oppressions. It is a collective aspiration to co-create a coexistence free from the mental chains that inhibit the full expression of our humanity.
Together, we sit in contemplation to process our absorbed traumas and breathe for the lives of Black, Indigenous, brown—and all persecuted and oppressed—communities of the world.
