Transforming Racism from the Inside Out


Racism remains one of the most rooted and painful impasses of our time. "Why is this so?" "What does this have to do with me?" In her talk, Ruth King, internationally know speaker and Buddhist teacher, will explore an understanding of our individual and collective racial conditioning and its social proliferation, and how mindfulness builds confidence, faith, and stability, fosters a culture of wise care and provides a foundation for reconciliation. Park Road Books will be selling King's latest book: Mindful of Race: Transforming Racism From The Inside Out, at the event. The talk is sponsored by Insight Meditation Community of Charlotte.
