W.A.K.E. Up Call

 It is up to each of us to create the future we want for our families, our communities, our country and our world.


Learning how to be an anti-racist is a great start. We have compiled a list of resources (below) to make it easier for you to begin or continue on your educational journey.


We encourage you to comment and to add to our list of resources!


Join us for W.A.K.E. (Wisdom Action Knowledge Enlightenment) with Denise Ganz and Juli Kagan of the Sattva Wisdom Center and Christine Lewis of Spoken Word Yoga to discuss the intersection of mindfulness and action, inspired by great books.
