Join Rev. angel Kyodo williams Sensei for a special Dharma Talk & Signing at Banyen on the themes of her book Radical Dharma: Talking Race, Love, and Liberation. Plus a Dharma retreat at Hollyhock.

Called “the most vocal and most intriguing African-American Buddhist in America,” by Library Journal, Rev. angel Kyodo williams Sensei, is an author, maverick spiritual teacher, master trainer and founder of Center for Transformative Change. She has been bridging the worlds of personal transformation and justice since the publication of her critically-acclaimed book, Being Black: Zen and the Art of Living With Fearlessness and Grace. Her book was hailed as “an act of love” by Pulitzer Prize winner Alice Walker and “a classic” by Buddhist teacher Jack Kornfield.

Ordained as a Zen priest, she is also a Sensei, the second of only four black women recognized as teachers in the Japanese Zen lineage. She is a social visionary that applies wisdom teachings and practice to social issues, and sees Transformative Social Change as America’s next great movement. In recognition of her work, Rev. angel received the first Creating Enlightened Society Award from Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, the leader of the international Shambhala Community.

This is a co-sponsored event of Hollyhock Talks & Banyen Books & Sound.
