Recorded Talk: Rashid Hughes (9/16/20)
Rest and Be Natural
During this talk, Rashid will explore what it means to Just Be Natural rather than putting effort into being supernatural or super holy.
Rashid Hughes is a native of Richmond Virginia. He is a proud graduate of the Howard University Department of Music and the Howard University School of Divinity. Rashid is a certified Mindfulness and Yoga Teacher and a Restorative Justice Specialist in Washington DC. He is also an Affiliate Teacher of the Insight Meditation Community of Washington DC. In 2019, Rashid co-founded the Heart Refuge Mindfulness Community, a Mindfulness Community in Washington, DC that is dedicated to inspiring Black, Indigenous, and People of Color to live with love and courage. Rashid’s devotion to truth and compassion leads him to teach faith-based and non-religious audiences, including secular Mindfulness Communities, Buddhist Sanghas, and the Black Church. The teachings of James Baldwin, Toni Morrison, and the music of Miles Davis and John Coltrane are deep sources of inspiration and hope for Rashid. Rashid is devoted to helping all people achieve fulfillment through radical honesty and self-compassion.
