    The most precious freedom, always – a marvelous gift we choose to accept – is the freedom to enter the covenant, the freedom to promise mutuality. All other freedoms depend ultimately upon this one.  -Alice Blair Wesley

     

    Mutuality Movement is a contemplative response to the Black Lives Matter movement that provides tools for youth and young adults to affect change through the practices of solidarity and meditation. The program trains youth and young adults to lead public meditation sessions, which cultivate inherent human compassion while offering a non-violent opportunity to publicly resist systems of injustice. Mutuality Movement encourages the development of covenant groups or sanghas, whose primary practice will be to respond non-violently to the problem of racism in America. 

     

    Rooted in Buddhist meditation, Mutuality Movement is compatible with Unitarian Universalism in teaching mutuality in praxis. It offers the opportunity to expand our faith beyond the walls of our congregations and into those communities in need of a sacred commitment from justice-oriented and faithful individuals.
