Reflecting on 2022, one of the most beautiful and heartfelt groups to emerge from our hospital community is the book club studying, The Inner Work of Racial Justice: Healing Ourselves and Transforming Our Communities Through Mindfulness authored by Rhonda V. Magee.
Dr. Magee is a professor of law at the University of San Francisco, and she uses her training in sociology and MBSR to shine a light on racial injustice.
The book club is a collaboration between the BC Children’s Hospital Centre for Mindfulness, Indigenous Health at BC Children’s Hospital and BC Women’s Hospital + Health Centre, and the Department of Pediatrics Hudson Scholar Awards Program for Equity Diversity and Inclusion. Members include faculty and staff from across the C&W campus.
On Sep 21 & Nov 16, 2022, the group discussed key takeaways from the book, interspersed with moments of quiet reflection and Mindful practice.
Looking forward to getting together again in the new year!
