Lifting the Blinds on Our Implicit Bias Windows

Rev. Ben Meyers (he/him)
Implicit biases are the unconscious attitudes, prejudices and judgements ‘hard-wired’ in every person through our individual experiences, upbringings and backgrounds. They affect what we think, do and say at an unconscious level. The antidotes are awareness, curiosity and hard consistent practice. This spiritual work is imperative and the core of transforming ourselves and the world.

The Rev. Ben Meyers loves living near Lake Merritt in Oakland, CA. His ministry spans 28 years: half of that time as a parish minister and half as a social justice/community minister. He is the proud father of two sons and loves spending as much time as possible with his two-year old grandson. His passion is working with individuals and faith-based communities throughout the country as a Solar and Clean Energy consultant. His mission is to accelerate the adoption of clean energy as a moral and spiritual imperative. As a proud parent of a transgender child, he is also a vocal ally and avid advocate for LGTBQ+ rights.
