    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
