Season 1 - PEPP MWe Up Gatherings

Welcome to our first season of the PEPP MWe up weekly gatherings. Initially the acronym, PEPP, stood for Personal Experience of the Planetary Pandemic, and our meetings focused on the pressing issues of cultivating resilience in the face of the massive and evolving disruptions in lives and livelihoods at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.  As social injustice in the United States became a central focus on top of concerns about physical distancing and viral infection, our conversations expanded to include how the human mind creates divisions, the nature of dehumanization inherent in racism, in-group/out-group distinctions, and what might be done with our collective ways of understanding and ending social inequities and marginalization made even more intense during the pandemic.

A variety of guests were invited to come onto the platform to discuss these pressing issues, including Rhonda Magee, Sará King, Ph.D., Angel Acosta, Ed.D., Mary Helen Immordino Yang, Ph.D., Justin Michael Williams, Nichol Case, Nico Cary, Orlando Villaraga, Jackie Ivy, and Jennifer Bloom.  We dove deeply into how to keep hope alive with explorations of music and poetry, education, parenting, and meditation, continuing our focus on practices, offerings, and discussions.
