I want to invite you into a discussion about caste in our world.  When I’ve mention the movie and the word caste to people, everyone - across the board - says, ‘oh, yeah, that’s in India.’

Until I watched this movie, I was unaware of the depth and breadth of the caste system in all countries, on all continents.  I didn’t understand that what we label racism in this country is actually the caste system.  This film opened my mind and my heart and most importantly, my awareness of what caste means, how it operates and how it continues to survive across the globe and in this country.

I invite you to watch ORIGIN sometime in the next two weeks.  You can find it on Amazon Prime for $5.99 and on Hulu beginning May 17.  On Friday, May 31, I invite you to join me live online from 1:00 – 3:00 for an exploration, conversation and opportunity to awaken to the definition and power of caste in our world.

I want to suggest that when you sit down to watch the film, you have a pen and writing pad to jot down thoughts, ideas, things you want to remember to bring to our discussion and exploration.  The day before the online event, you will receive a Zoom link for joining the discussion.  Our time together has the power to change our perspectives and empower each of us through insight, clarity and community.

I hope you will join me!
