2014-12-10 Race, Racism, and Spiritual Practice 69:15
  Donald Rothberg
We examine, in the context of contemporary concerns about racism, how we relate teachings about suffering, compassion, transforming ignorance, courage, and skillful action to our responses to racism. We also look briefly at the history of race and racism, and suggest ways of responding to racism individually, relationally, and collectively.

2014-12-09 How the past is created in the present 49:07
  Gloria Taraniya Ambrosia
What goes on in the mind when we remember things we have sensed, felt or thought in the past. It is through this activity of perception, and our attachment to it, that we have a very real sense of the past.

Bonnie Duran led a group for people of color (POC) meditators, and Joseph Goldstein spoke to and led a discussion with the non-POC group.
