Women's Week 2020
Becoming Conscious of Unconscious Racism
Where does racism hide… within our beliefs; within the structures that offer us comfort; within ideals with which we were raised? Where does unperceived “white privilege” show up in your life? We will discuss these hard questions as a first step to becoming anti-racist. Based on me and white supremacy by Layla F. Saad, this conversation invites a challenging experience: learn about an 8 week self-study of this important book.

Forest Bathing: Shinrin-yoku
October 17 - New Date
Go to a Forest. Walk slowly.
Breathe. Open all your senses.
Enjoy a time to wander, to wonder, to embrace the awe! Come for a walk in the woods and experience the Japanese tradition of Shinrin-yoku, forest bathing. It’s a simple practice that promotes positive change: if a person simply visits a natural area and walks in a relaxed way, there are calming, rejuvenating and restorative benefits. We will meet at the Burden Center trailhead behind the L’Orangerie.
