Portland Diversity Working Group

The Portland Diversity Working Group (PDWG) is a part of the Portland Shambhala Meditation Center working to address issues of diversity, oppression, and inclusion of all people regardless of their social identity, be it by race, ethnicity, gender or gender identity, class, sexual orientation, physical or mental ability, perceptual characteristics, or any other trait or social category used by some to maintain privilege and domination over others. We use contemplative practices, dialogue, and other tools grounded in the dharma to create safe and courageous spaces of curiosity and inquiry aimed at reaching through our false sense of separation and acknowledging our innate, universal basic goodness.

If you have any questions, please contact Michaela McCormick.
