Online Academy Courses

The Online Academy was established to support influencers and organizations seeking to engage in the inner work of racial healing. Founded by Ruth King, the Online Academy serves three distinct audiences:

  1. We provide racial depth and competency to influencers to understand their own racial conditioning and its impact on racial harmony.
  2. We serve as an integration supplement to diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives within organizations.
  3. We provide consulting organizations with racial competency and a resource that strengthens their service portfolio.

Our online educational courses provide an introspective investigation of our racial conditioning, our impact, and our collective potential.

The Brave Space core teachings are quite powerful. And as an organization that is at the intersection of doing racial equity work and mindfulness, the approach that you brought was a powerful pairing for folks at Ten Percent Happier.

If you're considering this exploration, it's worth your while and your time to dedicate the 12 months to unpacking what it is to be a racialized being and to bring mindfulness to it.

The Mindful of Race training opened our eyes; it put a fire under us and allowed us to get real. To move the needle, it's critical to engage people who are knowledgeable and can guide us on this journey. The work is deep and the ripples continue.
