Spirituality & Social Justice: An Educational Forum at the Center for Spiritual Life

This spring, CSL launches a new series on spirituality, social justice, and healing. Unique and dynamic Bay Area speakers, including Don Houston (2/28), Jesus Solorio (3/28), and Alice Phipps (4/25), visit the CSL community to reflect on their relationships to a variety of spiritual traditions in this era of social change, upheaval, and movement-building. These special teaching and learning opportunities are open to all.

On March 28th, we welcome Jesus Tlazo Tekutli Solorio, a bilingual/bicultural Chicano, born and raised in Los Angeles by migrant parents from Michoacán, Mexico. He is a Mexica/Aztec Dancer and Drummer with Calpulli Nanahuatzin and is learning how to integrate indigenous teachings to his daily life. Currently, Jesus is a mental health therapist and currently works with the Spanish speaking community in Hayward, CA. His clinical work is trauma informed, strength-based and is infused with indigenous worldview and spirituality. A major tenet of his work is La Cultura Cura (Culture Cures), recognizing that indigenous culture and spirituality is key to healing from trauma.
