Radical Dharma Weekend – 8 Limbs Yoga

15 December 2017 - 17 December 2017

$70 – $250

Radical Dharma is an urgent call to dharma communities to wake from the habitual ways they and their members reproduce and sustain exclusion. Radical Dharma advocates a “new dharma” that deconstructs rather than amplifies systems of suffering and prepares us to weigh the shortcomings not only of our own minds but also of our communities. We can only accomplish shifts in awareness through radical honesty, a common ground where we can drop our need for perfection to speak and act from a place of deep vulnerability, and authentic presence. Regardless of how unpleasant this feels or how messy this looks, Radical Dharma emerges out of this kind of disarmed honesty, just as a lotus emerges from the mud. The workshop will serve to:

  • create a space where participants can practice radical honesty.
  • create a space where historically marginalized voices in American sanghas are centered
  • investigate how “politics of dis-belonging” plays a role in silencing ourselves and others
  • equip participants with tools that can be taken back to their practices communities to continue the work creating radically inclusive and honest communities

This event is co-hosted by 8 Limbs, Mindfulness Community of Puget Sound, and Rainier Beach Yoga. First Covenant Church of Seattle generously donated the use of The Summit for this workshop.
