Mindfulness and the Creative Disruption of Bias

by Viveka

Viveka exploring the theme of racism from the perspective of the Dharma and what the Buddha had to say about complex conditionality. A timely look at understanding - and ultimately undoing - the patterns that lead to prejudice and bias, of all kinds.

Specifically, this talk investigates:

- Opening to the inter-personal, organizational, and societal conditioning that perpetuates racial bias.

- Understanding 'implicit bias', which is how thoughts, feelings, emotions, and actions are influenced (largely unconsciously) by exposure to stereotypes and fears about targeted social groups.

- How can the mechanics of 'implicit' bias be disrupted by the power of mindfulness?

Talk given at San Francisco Buddhist Center, June 2016.
