A mindful approach to confront racial injustice and work towards healing

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!
