The whole thing will be about 20 minutes, so it can mark the start of your week, or if you are an early-riser, a mid-morning break!

The theme from Sept. 21st to Oct. 19 will be "Transforming our Lives: Release, Evolve, Create"--getting us thinking and reflecting on the theme of our upcoming Weekend of Spirit virtual retreat.

Mindful Anti-racism: A Radical Exploration of Race and Resilience

Registration has closed for this course. Please inquire with Debbie Clark if you would like to register. debbie@openspiritcenter.org

This eight-week virtual program encourages intentional anti-racism work through a multifaceted approach rooted in mindfulness, education, and action. This program is rooted in the work of Ruth King’s work "Mindful of Race". The program includes discussion based work through Racial Affinity Groups.

 

Psychoeducational programming will address a variety of relevant topics including addressing how racism exists in systems (education, criminal justice) as well as how we can best equip ourselves to do the work of anti-racism in a way that is sustainable and impactful. Educational components will address both theory and practice. All work will be rooted in self-inquiry, mindfulness practices, and embodied movement.  Taught by Dr. Danielle Rousseau and Dr. Kelsey Evans-Amalu.

 

Registration deadline is September 1. Email questions to debbie@openspiritcenter.org

We ask for a registration fee of $20. We encourage participants to make an additional donation to support this program, if you are able. Suggested donation: $60-140 (or $10-20 per session, including the registration fee), more if you can, less if you can’t. Cost should not be a deterrent! Participants must also obtain the required reading Mindful of Race by Ruth King.

Honoring the Elders Interviews Project

Open Spirit is very excited to be joining Transition Framingham in the Honoring the Elders Environmental Interviews Project.

The goal of the project is to have people interview Framingham resident elders (65 years old and better) to capture stories from an earlier time when people used less energy and had different life skills. By learning from the past, we can learn “lost skills from the past” in order to guide us forward.

This project provides a great opportunity to connect with someone and deepen your relationship to them and to the Framingham community.

For more information about being an interviewer or if you are 65+ and would like to be interviewed, please email project4framingham@gmail.com.
