This webinar will enable participants to learn practical ways to identify and transform thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that reflect prejudice against ourselves and others. Participants will learn activities that enable them to infuse a liberatory consciousness into their contemplative practice.

Goals of this webinar include:

  1. Participants will gain information about the concept and process of human revolution and how human revolution relates to enlightenment and absolute freedom
  2. Participants will have the opportunity to practice chanting, silent meditation and contact exercises that allow for the exploration of thoughts, feelings, and sensations about self and world
  3. Participants will have an opportunity to practice exercises that allow them to explore what their personal human revolution could involve and what practices they can put into place to consistently engage in accessing their own enlightenment.
