About this event
A space for Black Buddhist students and practitioners to come together and share experiences, mutual support and collective wisdom. We are honoured to welcome Professor Jan Willis to this space as our special guest. Professor Willis is an early student of Lama Yeshe, the founder of FPMT, including Jamyang London Buddhist Centre. She is a Buddhist scholar, an activist whose formative years overlapped with the United States’ era of racial segregation, and she has been an advocate for the development of more inclusivity within Buddhist practice spaces. In many ways, she is a trailblazer and an inspiration. Join us for an evening of dialogue and connection.
Is this for me?
This is a space for Black people and people of mixed Black heritage.
