Summer Reading Circles

Aug 7 to Sep 25 online (International)

Summer Reading Circles

Would you like to read a transformational book written by a Buddhist author about race over the summer? Would you consider doing this as a community, within a supportive online ‘Reading Circle’ with other Triratna sangha members?

The next reading circle is August 7 to September 25.  8 weeks, 90 minutes meeting on zoom at 12 noon Pacific time. The book is: Black Buddhists and the Black Radical Tradition

The first Reading Circle began in June and has received extremely good reviews from participants. The book was: The Race Conversation by Eugene Ellis.  Subhuti describes the book as ‘a ground-breaking and timely study’. Paramabandhu recently interviewed Eugene at the London Buddhist Centre.

Reading Circles are open to experienced members of the Triratna Buddhist Community (order members, mitras and friends) of all races and ethnicities. Each session will be held mostly in the format of racial affinity groups. These are intentional small groups for BIPOC/BAME and white/white-presenting people.

This initiative is a collaboration of the (white) Awareness is Revolutionary Collective and members of the BIPOC/BAME community of Triratna.
