"Its an inside job"
Marici Fellowship’s Agents of Change
A young adult group ages 16-24 centered around dealing with what is happening in the world today, connecting through discussion and dharma practices with guidance from H. E. Avikrita Vajra Sakya.
Examples of topics for Discussion:
- Racism and Social Justice
- Climate change: Safeguarding our natural world
- LGBTQ allyship and support
All topics discussed and activities will be decided by the group.
Under the Guidance of H.E. Avikrita Vajra Sakya Rinpoche we connect our dharma practices with these issues, so as individuals we can become independent of those ideas and become the embodiment of the change we want to see in the world.
We start with discussing systemic and social justice issues and the movements designed to identify and change them through the lens of Ibram X. Kendi’s bestselling book, How To Be An Antiracist, followed by other great books and resources.
The Agents of Change Group meets via Zoom every other Monday from 6:30 - 8:00pm
Winter 2020-21 dates: December 1st, 15th, 28th, January 11, 25th, February 8th, 22nd.
