#259 How You Can Help Transform America’s Racial Karma | Dr. Larry Ward
What can you, as an individual, do to help break the cycles of rage, pain, fear, and violence that continue to grip America — and many other parts of the world — relating to the issue of race? Even though our guest this week was shot at by white police officers at the age of 11, and later had his house firebombed by racists, he is hopeful that now is a moment of true potential— an opportunity to transform what he calls “America’s racial karma,” and, by extension, ourselves. Dr. Larry Ward is a lay minister in the lineage of the great Vietnamese Zen master, Thich Nhat Hanh. He’s an advisor to the Executive Mind Leadership Institute at the Peter F. Drucker School of Management. He has done consulting work with Fortune 500 companies around. And he has a PhD in religious studies with an emphasis on Buddhism. His forthcoming book is called America’s Racial Karma.
