FREE ONLINE EVENT – The Arrow: Reflections and New Directions in Wakeful Society, Culture and Politics
December 14, 2023 6:00 - 8:00 pm Eastern
A Celebration of 10 Years of Publishing at The Arrow Journal
The Arrow: A Journal of Wakeful Society, Culture & Politics emerged at the start of 2014 to ask: How can contemplative wisdom help us transform the challenges of our world? In the past decade, The Arrow has published well over a hundred articles by leading scholars, meditation teachers, and activists on themes such as healing social and ecological rifts, Black Buddhist experiences, Buddhism and feminism, engaged Buddhism, dharma and climate change, and embodiment in racial justice work. Underpinning all the work at The Arrow is a key assumption: the path of spiritual warriorship and the work of transforming systemic suffering are inseparable.
Now, The Arrow is in a momentous transition: our co-founder and chief editor, Gabe Dayley, is stepping down at the end of this year, and we are forging a partnership with Courage of Care, a fantastic organization that builds compassion-based, counter-oppressive, healing-centered, transformational, and visionary practice communities.
Please join us for a special event to reflect on where we’ve been, celebrate the amazing teachers, writers, and artists who’ve made it possible, and envision where we might be headed. This will be a generative, joyful space for acknowledgement, play, movement, and creating together.

This program will be recorded for internal organizational purposes.
