 ‘As we set out to look deeply into racism with mindfulness, we need to maintain a commitment to meet whatever arises—including our own and others’ emotions—with an uncommon level of kindness and love, and with a genuine wish for healing. We need to develop and embody radical compassion and the will to be a space within which racial truth can be spoken and heard.’ (from Lion’s Roar)

I hear echoes of the approach of bell hooks. These days, I think we need all the reminders we can get.
