Review of Rhonda V. Magee’s ‘The Inner Work of Racial Justice’

Touching the earth: exploring a new, secular self-help mindfulness group approach

Touching the Earth groups aspire to treat participants as equals, where no one is paid to lead or facilitate, and each participant takes responsibility for cultivating their own path and for supporting others in cultivating theirs.

Meditative practice does not take us beyond that present moment in its totality. If anything, it leads us deeper, to union with it.
