Bringing Awareness to Our Racial Identity

A 12-minute practice to look at your skin and bring mindfulness to that aspect of your embodied self.

For today’s practice, I will be offering a guided meditation to assist in deepening your awareness of the thoughts, emotions, and sensations that come up for you when you examine the skin that you’re in, the way that race is a part of how you’re seen in the world, and how you see yourself. What we’re going to do in these few moments, is offer a taste of a practice that I explore in my work, The Inner Work of Racial Justice. This is an opportunity to feel and reflect on the thoughts, emotions, and sensations that you carry when you encounter the aspect of your being and identity within yourself as you engage with your own racial identity, and the way others may identify you through the lenses of race.
