One Human Family

Population geneticists agree that all of us are literally one human family. What would our world be like if everyone acted on this truth? —SHARON SALZBERG, Real Love: The Art of Mindful Connection

As quoted by Rhonda Magee in The Inner Work of Racial Justice

“We need support in the cultivation of the ability to sit compassionately with and talk about our own particular experiences with race, race-related injury, and alienation. We need help developing the capacity to be able to listen to the very different stories of others with compassion; to have conversations across lines of real and perceived difference that help and heal, rather than hamper and hurt; and to exercise the will to come back for more, with increasing capacity for empathy and a deepening desire for others to heal and thrive in the world.” Rhonda Magee in The Inner Work of Racial Justice
