At the invitation of Reverend Dixon and The Coalition, members of Indigo Sangha are participating in a counterprotest at Charleston’s Battery Park each Sunday from 8:30 to 10 am. A small group of White people fly large Confederate flags on Sunday mornings. Members of The Coalition, Uplift, and Stand as One gather in counterprotest.
As Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh instructs, Indigo Sangha members bring the peace of our practice to the scene by mindfully sitting in meditation under the shade of the trees, smiling, and enjoying walking meditation.
If you’d like to join us any Sunday, contact Ron Alexander at: email@example.com. We meet at the opposite end of the park at the corner of King and South Battery streets. Please wear a mask and carry bottled water and a sign that completes this sentence: “I support Black Lives because….”
NEWS FLASH: On Sunday, August 23rd from 8:00 to 10 am, Indigo Sangha will host an inter-faith demonstration entitled Sit. Walk. Listen. Stay tuned for more information.
We walk mindfully in noble silence around monument.
We practice Social Distancing
