I'm excited to share with you that my first book will be published soon!
White Ally: A Guide to Cultivating a Deeply Spiritual AntiRacism Practice
You can pre-order the ebook here and paperback will be available August 1st.
I have always loved books and began writing as a way of healing when I was twelve years old. It's been a dream of mine to write a book. However, this is not the book I had in mind. The way babies choose their parents, this book chose me in so many ways.
The Yamas and Niyamas, yoga's ten guidelines, guide you to live in peace and harmony with yourself and the world. In this book, learn how to cultivate an anti-racism practice using the framework of yoga's ten guidelines, the Yamas and the Niyamas. Examine your biases, conditioning, values and beliefs by exploring the philosophy of each guideline in every chapter. Brief guided meditations are provided at the end of the chapter to enhance mindfulness and self-awareness. Reflection questions are included at the end of the chapter for deepened understanding and self inquiry.
Following the philosophy of each guideline, interwoven with examples and personal stories, invites you to become more mindful of recognizing racism within yourself and in the world. The Yamas and Niyamas guide you toward letting go of limiting and harmful behaviors and beliefs. These guidelines free you to see beyond your own desires into the collective good. As you become more mindful and begin to acknowledge systemic racism and injustice, you can use this awareness to become a more effective ally to people of color.
Open your heart and mind, gain the awareness, skills and compassion to change the world from the inside out.
