"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 issues
  • Climate change
  • Issues within the LGBTQ community

All topics discussed and activities will be decided by the group.

 

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. We’ll read a few chapters of the book for each meeting and discuss the various themes and how they encourage us to think about the messages and stereotypes that society bombards us with in our everyday lives.

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.

The Agents of Change Group meets every other Tuesday from 6:30 - 8:00pm

Winter 2020-21 dates: December 1st, 15th, 29th, January 12, 26th
