White Awake Study Group

Notice: This study group will NOT meet as usual May 16th, 2021. We will meet once in summer, June 20th to discuss the final chapter of the book, How To Be An Antiracist. We’ll also discuss next book ideas. (Please come with ideas.) We will then take July and August off and return September 19th with a new book (tbd).

The Los Angeles Shambhala White Awake Study Group is a group for anyone who identifies as white who wants to learn more about the realities of racism and the unintended impacts of white privilege so that they can consciously contribute to racial justice rather than unconsciously perpetuate patterns of racism. We gather with other white people to create a space of learning without causing more harm. We hold the Shambhala values of basic goodness, bravery, gentleness, kindness, and understanding at the center of our study.

3rd Sunday of the month, 1:00 – 2:30 pm White Awake Book Group [Online]

Over the course of the next year, we will be meeting to study the NEW YORK TIMES bestseller, How to Be An Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi.  Drop-ins are welcome whether or not you’re current with the reading.

Please see our monthly calendar for upcoming meetings.
