Ruth King to Speak on Being Mindful of Race

Ruth King

Ruth King, Chrysalis Institute’s fall keynote speaker, will draw on her expertise as a meditation teacher and diversity consultant to examine the complexity of racial identity and the dynamics of oppression with fresh eyes at the First Unitarian Universalist Church from 7 to 9 p.m. on October 25. She notes that racism remains one of the most rooted and painful impasses of our time and encourages cultivating a culture of care to come to a place of greater clarity and compassion.

King is an emotional wisdom coach, consultant and author of Healing Rage: Women Making Inner Peace Possible and Mindful of Race: Transforming Racism from the Inside Out. Following the presentation, Mindful of Race will be available for purchase and King will sign copies.
