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. 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.
Distinct to the Institute's programs are opportunities to examine and transform our racial conditioning as individuals and as racial groups within the systemic power structures that we inhabit. Our training programs and interventions emphasize racial understanding, connection, and accountability.
The Mindful of Race Institute™ was established to support influencers seeking to engage in the inner work of racial healing and relational wellbeing. Our educational programs provide an introspective investigation of our racial conditioning and impact. Founded by Ruth King, the Institute serves leaders, facilitators, coaches, consultants, health and healing practitioners, and artists and activists in positively impacting the racial potential for social harmony.
About the Online Academy
Transforming through mindful investigation
Mindfulness principles and meditation practices are core to this investigation as they support us in understanding our racial habits, history, and heritage as lived in our bodies and minds, and reflected in the world. Mindfulness practice ripens awareness, curiosity, and presence, and reveals to us both the raw truth of racial distress and our experiences of freedom. Further, mindfulness supports an embodied integration of racial awareness and response to social harmony.
Transforming through racial inquiry
Fundamental to the Institute's offerings is the examination of two questions:
1. Why are matters of race still matters of concern? And,
2. What does this have to do with me?
These questions are meant to initiate us into a journey of self inquiry and a call to care for the web of social humanity.
Deepening racial awareness and impact
The Mindful of Race Online Academy offers opportunities that deepen our understanding of how we individually and collectively contribute to racial harm and harmony. In our introspective and transformative programs, we realize our interdependence and our impact on others, and we experience the power of genuine connection, compassion, non-harming, respect, and social responsibility. Our programs also support teams and organizations to align with diversity, equity, and inclusion aspirations.
