About this Event

This urgent moment is calling for change. What role will you play? We invite you to join us for this four-part series as we study See No Stranger: A Memoir and Manifesto of Revolutionary Love. In this text Valarie Kaur presents revolutionary love as the call of our time–as a radical choice to enter into labor for others, opponents and ourselves in order to transform the world around us. It offers an orientation to life that is personal and political, rooted in the Sikh practices of the Warrior Sage. Revolutionary Love calls us to be brave as we fight for the dignity of all life. It engages our meditative minds, deepest wisdom and our emotions – wonder, grief, rage, and joy – to reimagine our relationships, communities and institutions. It takes us on the path toward reconciliation by reminding us “Forgiveness is not forgetting. Forgiveness is freedom from hate.”

This class meets weekly beginning Friday May 21st to Friday June 11th (4 Friday meetings) from 12-2EST (New York). There is a special guest appearance with author Valarie Kaur date/time TBA. The format will be lecture and discussion with about 70 pages of reading as homework per week.
