Growing our inner capacity to face racial ignorance and suffering with a wise and caring heart
This powerful and penetrating book offers us healing medicine for the great suffering of racism. Ruth King, a deeply wise and caring mindfulness teacher and diversity consultant, not only helps us understand the complexity of our great racial divide, she offers a core of practices, reflections and actions that gives us hope for transformation. Our world needs this book. We need this book. Please read with a receptive heart, and share with all you know! - Tara Brach, author of Radical Acceptance and True Refuge
Ron Rawald, senior managing director and head of international real estate at Cerberus Capital Management, died two days after recording this video. His biracial daughters, who edited the video with him, shared that their conversation was long awaited and profoundly meaningful to their family. Ron was not able to join our memorial event, but his legacy lives loud.
Reading your book is like understanding the blueprints before building the house. ~ Robyn Freedman Comyn
King's approach is revolutionary in the deepest sense because it addresses our racial problems at their root, which is consciousness, or the mind itself. Mindful of Race is rich in anecdotes and examples that will, I believe, cause a reader to smile and perhaps even say, “Thank you.” Mindful of Race is a trustworthy guide for claiming our birthright – happiness and freedom. - Charles Johnson, author, Middle Passage and Taming the Ox
