Special Event: Ruth King on Mindfulness of Race

Thursday, November 15
7:30 – 9:00pm

In this talk, Ruth King — author of Mindful of Race: Transforming Racism from the Inside Out — blends an understanding of mindfulness principles with an exploration of our individual and collective racial conditioning and its systemic proliferation. With mindfulness practice, we learn how to stay present to what’s true and what’s difficult with a caring and wise heart. This talk emphasizes how being mindful of race supports a culture of care and belonging. Ruth King, is a teacher in the Insight Meditation tradition.
