Transforming Racism from the Inside Out

  • Anderson Center at Hamline University (774 Snelling Avenue North Saint Paul, MN, 55104 United States (map)

Racism is fed through unawareness, the misuse of power, and by how we respond to it. Ruth King, author of Mindful of Race, supports us in understanding our humanity – how we can hurt and how we can heal. This talk explores our racial programming, its impact, and our potential.

The location is the Anderson Center at Hamline University (774 Snelling Ave N, St Paul, MN 55104).

The talk is 7-9pm, with social time from 6:30-7:00 and a reception from 9:00-9:45.

To ensure as many people in our wider community can attend, this program is offered freely.

Ruth King is a teacher in the Insight Meditation tradition. She is on the Teacher’s Council at Spirit Rock Meditation Center and is the founder of Mindful Members Insight Meditation Community of Charlotte, NC. She is a life coach and leadership consultant and offers the Mindful of Race Training program to teams and organizations nationwide. She is the author of several publications, including Healing Rage: Women Making Inner Peace Possible and Mindful of Race: Transforming Racism from the Inside Out.
