Mindful of Race: Transforming Racism from the Inside Out

by Ruth King Author

A Buddhist perspective that emphasizes the importance of cultivating a culture of care, for ourselves and others, as a more effective means of change. King helps readers examine the complexities of racial identity and the dynamics of oppression with a focus in self-care. As with any uncomfortable, disturbing topic, we can see, understand, and respond to racism more effectively when we learn to work with intense emotions mindfully so we can redirect our energies.

Ruth King works as a diversity consultant AND a meditation teacher, and writes: "Racism is a heart disease, and it's curable".
