Description

Have you wondered how to engage in mindful travel both locally and globally? How might we travel across differences in race, culture, wealth and access with more grace, reflection and accountability? How might we connect the movement for Black Lives Matters and racial equity in the US with broader global inequality?

Join us for a workshop led by Dr. Anu Taranath featuring her timely and compelling book, Beyond Guilt Trips: Mindful Travel in an Unequal World. Featured in Oprah Magazine's "26 Best Travel Books of All Times," and a Finalist for three book awards, Mindful Magazine has written, "Enlivened by her travel stories—at once tense, challenging, and brightly beautiful— Taranath's book may become required reading for those who wander, and those who want to."

Dr. Anu is UW faculty in English & Comparative History of Ideas and a racial equity facilitator. Let's delve into issues related to identity, social justice, and the limits and potential of our good intention. It's more urgent than ever before to rethink how we engage in an unequal world both in our own communities and across the globe. All are welcome, please do join us.
