Mindfulness for Social Justice, is multi-week discussion series for QTBIPOC (Queer, Trans, Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) students. By acknowledging how capitalist society places value on production over humanity, joy, and rest, this course aims to explore how self and community care may bring us closer to our authentic and full selves, which is necessary for doing social justice work. Using mindful practices as a way to learn more about oneself and create a community beyond the restrictions and expectations of our oppressive society, we hope to provide a tool kit for students to prevent burnout and promote self-preservation. In order to sustain ourselves and our work for the long-term, we must engage with restful practices that are truly restorative to our minds, bodies, and spirits. To that end, we will learn and practice methods to self-soothe, participate in community care, and understand rest as a truly revolutionary act. Our time together will also serve as a discussion space touching upon the topics of grief, rest, spirituality, and capitalism while prioritizing self-discovery, community care, and joy.
