January 27, 2022 - Thursday 5:30-7pm PST - Black and Buddhist: What Buddhism Can Teach Us About Race, Resilience, Transformation and Freedom - with Pamela Ayo Yetunde - Webinar

| /


Buddhism is understood and applied differently over time, country, culture, pre-existing world views, genders, religions, and various identifications, including the construct of race.

In this conversation, we will discuss if and how Buddhist practices in the U.S. are liberation for Black people and non-Black people living in a racialized society.

Pamela Ayo Yetunde is the co-editor of Black and Buddhist: What Buddhism Can Teach Us About Race, Resilience, Transformation, and Freedom. She is also the author of other books and articles on Buddhism. Ayo is a pastoral counselor, chaplain, and co-founder of Center of the Heart (www.centeroftheheart.org).

Take-Aways from the event:

  • Black people practice Buddhism
  • There is an emerging Black Buddhist tradition emerging
  • Black people's lived experiences play into Buddhist liberative interpretations
  • Spiritual friendship as solidarity against oppression
