“Racism is a heart disease. And it’s curable.”
Revered teacher Ruth King shines a compassionate, provocative, and practical light into a deeply neglected and world-changing domain profoundly relevant to all of us. In Mindful of Race, Ruth King shares: Understanding how we have been conditioned to think and react is at the root of both racial distress and racial healing. Drawing on her expertise as a meditation teacher and diversity consultant, King helps readers of all backgrounds examine with fresh eyes the complexity of racial identity and the dynamics of oppression. She offers guided instructions on how to work with intense emotions mindfully and shows us how to cultivate a culture of care from a less tangled place to a place of greater clarity and compassion.
“Mindful of Race is a wonderfully pragmatic and inspiring guide on this journey of transformation. King explores the role of mindfulness in understanding the suffering of racism and the power of mindfulness for healing that corrosive conditioning. Highly recommended.” —Joseph Goldstein
“Mindful of Race is a great contribution. King...shows how mindfulness and empathy can help us understand the effects of racism and move toward its ending. A must read for everyone.” —Sharon Salzberg
