The Dharma of Homecoming: A Day of Practice for People of Color

Meditation Coalition and InsightLA are honored to host Lama Rod Owens in this day of practice for people of color.

Maya Angelou once wrote: “The ache for home lives in all of us. The safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned.”  James Baldwin reflected: “Perhaps home is not a place but simply an irrevocable condition.” In The Wiz, Stephanie Mills sang: “When I think of home I think of place where there’s love overflowing.” No matter how we think of home, it is a place that many of us need. The needing of a place called home is the needing to be in a place where we are safe and taken care of.  Home is the experience of taking refuge in something that restores us through love. Homecoming is opening to how home is calling us into being held and cared for.  As a community in this daylong retreat, we will be moving through mindfulness practice, heart based practices, pranayama (energy breath practice), simple movement practice, as well as Lama Rod’s touching earth practice (Bhumisparsha) and the 7 Homecomings to explore the profound path of homecoming.The suggested donation is $15-$35 with the opportunity to offer additional dana at the event.
