May we understand and transform racial habits of harm
May we remember that we belong to each other
May we understand that what we do can help or hinder racial well-being
May our thoughts and actions reflect the world we want to live in and leave behind
May we look after ourselves and others with great care
May we heal the seeds of separation inherited from our ancestors in gratitude for this life
May all beings be free from animosity, free from oppression, and free from trouble
May all beings without exception benefit from our growing awareness
May our thoughts and actions be ceremonies of well-being for all races
May we honor being diverse racial beings within the human race
May we meet the racial cries of the world with as much wisdom and grace as we can muster
Here's a few cheers
From Our Clients
Insight Meditation Teacher and Mentor
Brave Space was brilliant for supporting racial affinity groups to understand what it is we carry. The biggest aspect was having these difficult and challenging conversations in relationship with each other. If we're not in relationship with each other, we're not going to go that extra mile; we're not going to sit in that discomfort and vulnerability and learn from it… to understand our conditioning within our communities, and notice how different even within those communities we are culturally. I found this exploration powerful and important.
Susan Bauer-Wu, President, Mind & Life Institute
The Mindful of Race year-long training for our organization 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.
JoAnna Hardy, Author & Founder of Meditation Coalition
I served as a Guided Teacher for a community struggling with issues around race, misogyny and hierarchy. Through doing Ruth's training, we had to open up to tough conversations and realities and dig in. Ruth King's work has been life changing to me and the communities I serve.
Tara Brach, author, Radical Compassion
Ruth's work offers us healing medicine for the suffering of racism. She not only helps us understand the complexity of our great racial divide, but she also offers core practices, reflections, and actions that give us hope for transformation.
Seth Van Der Swaagh, Industry Director, Advertising Sales, Google
The training was very well received, particularly your insight into dominant and subordinate group dynamics. In addition, your book is one of the best I've read on the work needed to transform racism, and I find myself underlining passages and reading things back to my wife regularly.
Novelette Demercado, Founder, BETA Coaching & Consulting
If you’re considering Brave Space, 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.
Ben Rubin, Co-founder & CEO, Ten Percent Happier
The Brave Space teachings are powerful. As an organization at the intersection of racial equity work and mindfulness, the approach that you brought was a powerful pairing for folks at Ten Percent Happier.
Ron Rawald, Sr. MD & Head of International Real Estate, Cerberus Capital Management
One of the hard truths of reading Ruth’s book was learning that I was partially colorblind; I could not see my own whiteness. Coming from a small town in Indiana and ending up on Wall street, I never felt I had advantages. But I did! I now understand white privilege within me and our industry. This is why I invited Ruth to support us in having this conversation.
Tanisha Pleasant, MBA, Director of Equity Strategy, Strive Together
In our year together, Ruth did a great job drawing the connection between mindfulness and race equity work, and showing us how to remain grounded, strategic, and systemic while doing this important work.
