Practice:RAIN, Mindfulness of Emotions

How can we individually and collectively cultivate vibrant, powerful masculine energy that is free from aggression and domination? Learn how Bobbito Garcia—a DJ, filmmaker, NYC street basketball legend, and father—has redefined masculinity in the worlds of hip-hop, sports, and entertainment, exemplifying just how cool it can be to lead with love.

This session will start with a mindfulness practice, guided by Compassionate Action series host Kate Johnson, on working with strong emotions, empowering you to respond from the heart instead of reacting from habit. Kate and Bobbito will discuss how we can create the conditions for healthy masculinity and transcend toxic masculinity with joy, rigor, and love. Then Bobbito and Kate will answer questions about building creative and business cultures in which all genders can thrive.
