Additional Notes

From The Publisher*

In a moment of racial tension, have you ever tried to simply "shrug o?" your outrage? Or put on a pleasant face so that others wouldn't feel uncomfortable? Or dared to take a stand-only to find that it in?amed the situation? With Mindful of Race, Ruth King o?ers another option:

To tend first to our su?ering, listen to what it is trying to teach us, and direct its energies most e?ectively for change.

Drawing on her expertise as both a meditation teacher and diversity consultant, King supports readers of all backgrounds with an abundance of insights and guided practices to help us identify our misperceptions, honor and engage with our most challenging emotions, temper them with compassionate forgiveness, and find the optimal course of wise action.
