After about six years of mindfulness practice, I thought I was pretty aware of what was going on around me with respect to race and racism. Well, this progressive, leftist, older white male got his eyes opened in this course. I literally can never go back to the way I thought I had a handle on racism and my role in it, or more accurately, how central my role is in personally maintaining a totally unacceptable status quo. If you are not open to having your head completely spun around, don’t register…but please do!
