Mindful Of Race


How to grow our inner capacity to face racial ignorance and suffering with a wise and caring heart

“Racism is a heart disease,” writes Ruth King, “and it’s curable.” Exploring a crucial topic seldom addressed in meditation instruction, this revered teacher takes to her pen to shine a compassionate, provocative, and practical light into a deeply neglected and world-changing domain profoundly relevant to all of us.

Here, she invites us to explore:

  • Ourselves as racial beings, the dynamics of oppression, and our role in racism
  • The power of paying homage to our most turbulent emotions, and perceiving the wisdom they hold
  • Key mindfulness tools to understand and engage with racial tension
  • Identifying our “soft spots” of fear and vulnerability—how we defend them and how to heal them
  • Embracing discomfort, which is a core competency for transformation
  • How our thoughts and emotions “rigidify” our sense of self—and how to return to the natural flow of who we are
  • Body, breath, and relaxation practices to befriend and direct our inner resources
  • Identifying our most sensitive “activation points” and tending to them with caring awareness
  • “It’s not just your pain”—the generational constellations of racial rage and ignorance and how to work with them
  • And many other compelling topics
