Making-Visible: The Indigenous Community

You’re invited to a video call curated by filmmaker and Piscataway rights activist, Sebastian Medina-Tayac. Scroll down to read more about Sebi.

We will take time to stop and rest in community. Each moment of stopping is critical for our greater collective healing. Making visible is a free webinar program supported by the Thich Nhat Hanh Foundation, based in California, along with the Opening Heart Mindfulness Community in Washington, DC. This call includes one hour of teaching led by our expert, Sebastian, with lived experience. There will be time for mindful questions and answers and sharing, and a follow up dharma sharing call after.

All of our learning calls will be led by the people who are living the life, and doing the work.
