We invite you to join national experts Dr. Dan Siegel, Dr. Sará King, and Caverly Morgan in Beloved Community for an inspiring panel discussion, community conversation, and call for change. Gia Naranjo-Rivera of Johns Hopkins University will moderate and share new award-winning research on Peace in Schools.
Youth in our nation are experiencing unprecedented levels of stress, anxiety, depression, violence and trauma. We recognize the relationship between these crises and the history of inequity, systemic oppression, and institutionalized racism that destroys our social fabric. Youth feel these deep injustices in their bodies, minds, and hearts—undermining their ability to experience healthy, supportive, and loving relationships.
Mindfulness, when taught with the intention of supporting social justice in schools, can give rise to healing, compassion, empathy, altruism, healthy relationships, and a wise heart. It can create empowered school climates and cultures within which students can thrive—and experience safety and true belonging with one another.
We are honored to offer up a space to open a community conversation around how we can further support our youth and come to a deeper understanding about the relationships between mindfulness, trauma, healing, and social and ecological justice.
The student and scholarship ticket rate is available for K-12 and college students and for those with currently limited financial resources.

Welcome to our second season of PEPP: The Personal Exploration of Planetary Possibility, a weekly gathering of our MWe Community. Our focus for this new season will be on Identity and Belonging, exploring how we not only build our inner and relational resilience, but deepen our understanding of who we are and how our culture shapes our sense of membership and agency. Our first gathering will be this Friday, September 11th, where we will have our honored guests, Sará King, Ph.D., Caverly Morgan, and Justin Michael Williams (see below for their bios). Our topic is Awareness, Well-Being and Identity. As usual, these are live events with exciting possibilities emerging in conversation and in connection with us as a community.
