Please join us as we Sit for $15!

On April 15th 2015, low-wage workers in over 200 cities worldwide will go on strike, demanding a living wage and the right to unionize. Their movement -- the Fight for $15 -- is now asking for a coalition of spiritual progressives to come out to support them and their important work.

Please join us for meditation and a teach-in on the campaign for fair wages -- a push initiated by fast food workers in the US that has blossomed into a global movement for economic justice.

We will learn about the history and values behind this movement, work together to articulate its relationship to our spiritual practice, and discuss concrete, creative and meaningful ways to get involved and offer support if we so choose.

The traditional Buddhist teaching of the Four Minds is used to create awareness of the preciousness of human life, the truth of impermanence, the law of cause and effect, and the nature of suffering as we move about our lives.   When contemplated along-side our consumption habits, the Four Minds help create a contrast between actions that promote general health and well-being, and actions that are harmful to our own health and that of our planet.

So many revolutions & reform movements end up simply replacing one gang of thugs with another.   If we have not begun to transform our own greed, ill will and delusions, our efforts to address their institutionalized forms are likely to be useless, or worse.
