Words of a Poet- Liba Ravindran
Thursday June 6th
A monthly group held by people of colour to showcase the talent within our community, authors and people making a difference in their communities.
The TNBC explores the relationship among contemplative practice, politics, and activism. We are Inspired and welcome the insights of multiple contemplative lineages for achieving a kinder, healthier, and more compassionate world. We encourage dialogue on wisdom and knowledge arising from methods of contemplative inquiry, ways of embodied knowing, and intellectual disciplines. We provide this much-needed space for investigating the meeting point of contemplative wisdom and pressing social, political, and environmental challenges.
Welcome and Introductions
Presentation and Q & A
Liba Ravindran is a spoken word poet, community organiser and social justice activist from Sri Lankan Tamil heritage, born in Norway and presently living in Southgate, North London. Liba has been using his poetry for grassroots change as a community activist and involved in the local poetry/spoken word scene in London through readings at various venues. He founded the Anti-Oppression Circle in 2020 which is an intersectional justice network led by BIPOC in the UK. Liba became involved due to a strong spiritual connection to nature, a love of humanity and a determined belief in transforming society through system change. Sowing seeds of inspiration, connecting wholly with others and acting purposely through compassionate action have led him to be a change-maker in liberatory spaces.
