“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, author of A Path With Heart

“This powerful and penetrating book offers us healing medicine for the great suffering of racism. Ruth King, a deeply wise and caring mindfulness teacher and diversity consultant, not only helps us understand the complexity of our great racial divide, she offers a core of practices, reflections and actions that gives us hope for transformation. Our world needs this book. We need this book. Please read with a receptive heart, and share with all you know!”—Tara Brach, author of Radical Acceptance and True Refuge

“King brilliantly breaks down one of the most complex experiences of human suffering. She provides a laser focus in re-building our collective humanity using universal potentials of awareness and kindness in all of our hearts and minds. Ruth’s book is a must-read, must-practice, must-live experience.”—Larry Yang, author of Awakening Together
