Reflections on the Inner Work of Racial Justice
Rhonda Magee, JD, MA, shares how she came to practice mindfulness as a support for working with and teaching about race and racism. She describes how a commitment to personal mindfulness practice, and intentional efforts to address and heal the wounds of racism, have manifested in her life in what she calls "Personal Justice." And she discusses how Personal Justice may serve as a foundation for taking steps — big and small — to create a more just world.
In this session, you'll receive:
- Insight into how mindfulness may be introduced and developed among groups of professionals
- Examples of how personal mindfulness practice may support healing from the wounds of racism and other forms of injustice
- Inspiration for taking one small step to act to create a more racially just world, wherever you are
