The Nashville Shambhala Meditation Group stands with the black community in proclaiming the dignity and worthiness of black lives. #blacklivesmatter. We pledge to look much more closely at racism in our hearts, our group, our community, and our world. In doing so we will examine our sense of social and economic privilege and instances of aggression and micro-aggression. We are committed to being actively anti-racist.
