Join esteemed Buddhist teacher & author Ruth King for a Dharma talk & launch of her new book Mindful of Race: Transforming Racism from the Inside Out.

Important medicine, wise, heartfelt, both demanding and comforting, with many tools for the real work of racism we need in these polarized times.
Jack Kornfield

In Mindful of Race, King explores the impact of racial injustice on communities at the margins... This book belongs in the hands of every activist, regardless of race! We need to develop a new language, a language that centers on healing and restoration.
Patrisse Cullors, co-founder of Black Lives Matter

Mindful of Race is a great contribution. King...shows how mindfulness and empathy can help us understand the effects of racism and move toward its ending.
Sharon Salzberg

Mindful of Race is a wonderfully pragmatic and inspiring guide on this journey of transformation. King explores the role of mindfulness in understanding the suffering of racism and the power of mindfulness for healing that corrosive conditioning. Highly recommended.
Joseph Goldstein

Our world needs this book. We need this book. Please read with a receptive heart, and share with all you know!
