About the Mindful of Race Institute™

Racism remains one of the most rooted and painful impasses of our time. It is fed through unawareness, oppressive systems, and the misuse of power.

The Mindful of Race Institute™ was founded by Ruth King to support leaders, facilitators, coaches, consultants, health and healing practitioners, artists, and activists seeking to engage in the inner work of racial healing and relational wellbeing. Our Online Academy is dedicated to advancing racial awareness, leadership, and social responsibility through mindfulness-based, online learning and group development programs. In our introspective programming, we teach leaders how to become racially aware and compassionate, and how to embody diversity, equity, and inclusion aspirations and accountability. Our core belief:

Racism is a heart disease, and it's curable!

Deepening our understanding of how we have been conditioned to think and react is curative to this heart disease and fundamental to collective wellbeing. This is the work of the Institute.
