This program is now closed to new registrations.
Law professor and mindfulness practitioner Rhonda V. Magee teaches that the work of racial justice begins within ourselves.
When conflict and division are everyday realities, our instincts may tell us to close ranks, to find the safety of our own tribe, and to blame others. However, the practice of embodied mindfulness—paying attention to our thoughts, feelings, and physical sensations in an open, nonjudgmental way—increases our emotional resilience, helps us to recognize unconscious bias, and offers space to become less reactive and to choose how we respond to injustice.
By dissolving our personal barriers to connection we can develop the ability to view others with compassion and to live in community with people of vastly different backgrounds and viewpoints.
Incorporating mindfulness exercises, research, and Rhonda's hard-won insights, The Inner Work of Racial Justice offers a road map to a more peaceful world. Join IMS and Rhonda V. Magee this February for an important conversation and practice community on the inner work of racial justice, and learn how mindfulness may help us—individually and collectively—heal and transform.
