Why: On May 15, Feminist Press executive director Jamia Wilson, Narrative Healing founder Lisa Weinert, and meditation teacher Kate Johnson will gather at the Rubin Museum for the latest installment of Compassionate Action, a series of interactive events with artists, healers, and others that will help guide participants in strengthening their skills and making a difference in the ever-more-challenging contemporary world. The evening’s theme is “Thought Party (‘mindfulness of thinking’) and Group Journaling” and will include a mindful contemplation meditation, a conversation about how stories can lead to healing, and an activity to find your voice and express it, as we all have stories to tell and to hear. Co-created and hosted by Johnson, Compassionate Action continues Wednesdays in May and June with such other programs as “Pleasure, Power, and Sexual Liberation” with Lama Rod Owens and Johnson, “The Power of Hope in a Changing Climate” with Ibrahim Abdul-Matin and Jungwon Kim, and “Joy, Rigor, and the Power of Wise Masculinity” with Bobbito Garcia and Johnson.
