About this Event

This Event is All Ages and Fully Seated.


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.
