In thinking about where to start when it comes to tackling racism and dismantling systems of oppression, it’s easy to feel like any right next steps can feel simultaneously like way too much and not nearly enough. Luckily I had the opportunity to chat with the incredible Rhonda Magee about her book, The Inner Work of Racial Justice: Healing Ourselves and Transforming Our Communities Through Mindfulness, and why mindfulness is the best place to start.
While this may seem like the least radical approach, Rhonda is here today to explain why that’s exactly the point. Get ready to quell your judgments and learn how to work toward racial justice by starting with yourself. Begin to lead with compassion and connect with others by means of doing your best, because you are enough! You do not want to miss this revelatory conversation!
RHONDA V. MAGEE is a professor of law at the University of San Francisco. Also trained in sociology and mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), she is a highly practiced facilitator of trauma-sensitive, restorative MBSR interventions for lawyers and law students and minimizing the effects of social-identity-based bias. Magee has been a visiting scholar at the Center for the Study of Law and Society and a visiting professor of law at the University of California, Berkeley.
