Societal Racism and Self-Compassion with Janine Lyman

Mediate Your Life with John Kinyon

Apr 22 2024 • 1 hr 12 mins

After moving to the U.S. from growing up in apartheid South Africa, Janine was deeply disturbed to notice implicit racial bias arise inside herself while teaching a college math course. Host John Kinyon guides Janine through the Mediate Your Life map for self-compassion—the Chooser-Evaluator process—to help Janine find empathy and healing for herself and discover a new integration, wholeness, and insight moving forward.
