UA Downtown Lecture Series: “Compassion as a Tool for Liberation and Racial Justice”

SUPPORT

Rather than waiting for compassion to appear as a “nice” feeling that suddenly overtakes us, a practice of radical care for one another can be forged out of sentiments of anger and frustration against injustice. In this talk, Buddhist teacher and activist Lama Rod Owens helps us think about compassion as a practice more intentional than simple gestures of benevolence. By “sitting with our discomforts” about the state of the world, we can confront the traumas that harm us and speak the truths to one another that lead to healing and liberation.

This free, in-person lecture is part of the University of Arizona College of Social and Behavioral Sciences’ Downtown Lecture Series titled “Compassion: A Tool for Human Understanding and Liberation” (four consecutive Wednesdays in October). Free admission with registration.
