Martin Luther King, Ancestral Guide Along the Bodhisattva Path (online)
January 17 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Please join us online while sangha members Richard Hicks and Omonivie Okhade lead our program to celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Richard Hicks was first introduced to Buddhism in an Asian Philosophies class in college and has been practicing Soto Zen since 2011 at Valley Streams Zen Sangha. In 2019 he became a member of the BIPOC Sangha (affiliated with SBMG) and has intensified his study of Buddhism through participating in the Valley Streams Dharma Study Group.
Omonivie Okhade has been practicing meditation for 15 years and has been a member of SBMG for over 10 years, previously serving on its Board as an officer and Board President. She reestablished SBMG’s People of Color Sangha (now BIPOC Sangha) in 2018 and served as its facilitator, creating a safe and intimate space for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color. Omonivie is a multidisciplinary artist in Sacramento, with a body of work in handmade jewelry and sculpture under the moniker Tula in Bloom.
“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all Indirectly.” ~Martin Luther King, Jr.
