Unwinding Whiteness: A White Affinity Group
These meetings are organized by our friends at Saskatoon Insight Mediataion Community. Led by Jeanne Corrigal, this nine-month group with meetings every 3-5 weeks will provide facilitation and peer support for white people to explore and unwind racist conditioning. These affinity groups have been identified as one of the key and powerful actions that the white community can take in this journey. Each Saturday session will be 1.5-2 hours, depending on the size of the group. Our exploration will be based in a Canadian context, with support from diverse readings, and include mindfulness practices in each meeting.
There is no fee for this group, but purchase or accessibility to 3-4 books will be required. There will be an opportunity to offer dana/donation to Jeanne at the end of the program.

The Curious Heart: An Online Course with Kat BoehmThe Curious Heart online course is a definite work of love and art from our friend Kat that encapsulates the Buddha’s teachings for our modern day life.
Take as much time as you need to digest the material: there are a total of 7 lessons including: themed talks, guided meditations and home play to explore.
Listen, contemplate and meditate – as the Buddha himself reminded us.
“My sincere hope is that this journey enlivens your practice, enhances your daily life and brings clarity to your heart” – Kat Boehm
