Race and Equity

June 12, 2018

The national conversation about Race and Equity must re-energize a conversation about the inner transformation associated with becoming conscious of one’s subconscious. The relationship between the development of racial awareness and spiritual awakening is evoked by the often used expression “get woke” to describe the process of becoming aware of society’s implicit subjugation of people of color and other marginalized groups in America. Likewise, becoming aware of the essential blind spot which allows the genocide and slavery at the roots of U.S. history to go unrecognized is essential to both any personal freedom and the understanding of any effective way forward.
