Leslie Booker: Self-Preservation of Activism

This talk by Leslie Booker in Worldwide Insight is a rich stew of mindful insights and embodied practices, offering many different kinds of dharma approaches to activism.  Leslie has taught yoga and meditation practice to youths in juvenile penal systems and Riker’s Island prison. Leslie looks deeply into her own patterns of anger and reactivity in the activist context and how that anger can be transformed. Leslie talks about her choices to engage in front line action in the Occupy Movement, while engaging in supporting and teaching roles in the Black Lives Matter movement, and how she made those kinds of decisions as a mindful practitioner and activist. Many of her insights will surprise you. Leslie has a wealth of wisdom about dharma approaches to engaged Buddhism.
