A thoughtful, practical guide featuring 33 mindfulness exercises centered on healing for the Black community.
In Black People Breathe, mindfulness teacher Zee Clarke draws on her professional expertise and her perspective as a Black woman to offer mindfulness exercises, breathwork practices, and meditative tools centered on healing and survival for those who have endured racial trauma. Studies show that mindfulness can ease mental health concerns, and having experienced the benefits firsthand, Clarke shares the practices that have been essential to her well-being.
Each chapter highlights one of the many systemic challenges that people of color face, offering exercises based on the emotions elicited from these experiences. Whether you're coping with police brutality, racial profiling, microaggressions, or even imposter syndrome, Clarke prescribes practical techniques that will help you process these complex feelings mentally, physically, and emotionally.
Beautifully designed with gorgeous, vibrant illustrations, Black People Breathe takes an inclusive approach to mindfulness, centering and validating the experiences of anyone who has suffered from racial injustice.
