Practice: Equanimity Meditation and Group Journaling

How are the next generation of social justice activists learning from the past and building the future of compassionate action? Aditi Juneja (lawyer, activist, and co-creator of Self-Care Sundays) and Anthonine Pierre (community organizer and deputy director of the Brooklyn Movement Center) join host Kate Johnson to discuss new perspectives on using technology and self-care to avoid burnout and build social movements that are accessible, sustainable, and deeply relational.

Learn an equanimity meditation to help you connect with the vision of the long arc of history that bends toward justice and honor your contribution to that arc. Also take part in a guided journaling practice that will help you reflect on your passions, skills, and experiences and discover new ways to effect positive change by starting where you are.
