Product Details


“Generous and restorative, this powerful trinity of Black authors invites us into the living room of their hearts, affirming who we are with earthy straight talk, textured diversity, and wise tenderness. Healing Our Way Home takes us back and moves us forward in joy, unity, and reverence. Read if you want both comfort and truth.”
 —Ruth King, author of Mindful of Race: Transforming Racism from the Inside Out

“As a White-bodied person, I am enlarged by Healing Our Way Home—reading it has brought smiles and tears, understanding and inspiration. These wise teachings guide us to reconnect with our spiritual roots and bring a courageous presence into our contemporary world. The book itself is an activity of love, like an intimate warm conversation at the kitchen table.”
—Tara Brach, author of Radical Acceptance

“This beautiful offering is a direct and courageous response to the ancestors’ call to heal the generations before and those who will come after. Having created a sacred circle, to teach and allow us to listen in, pays honor to the indigenous ways teachers taught in ancient times. All we need to do is listen clearly with our hearts. What is being shared here goes beyond the stories and follows a winding path towards joy and liberation.”
—Zenju Earthlyn Manuel, author of The Shamanic Bones of Zen, The Way of Tenderness, and The Deepest Peace

“This precious book is a profound gift of generosity, insight, and healing, offered to us by three of the most compelling voices in Buddhism today who invite us to join them in an intimate conversation on the transformative process of bringing our whole selves to the practice of mindfulness.”
—Brother Phap Hai, author of The Eight Realizations of Great Beings: Buddhist Wisdom for Waking Up to Who You Are

“In a world that too often leads with the mind, Healing Our Way Home is a true gift from the heart. It transmits the ancient wisdom of the dharma through story and narrative, painting a beautiful picture of what wisdom looks and feels like. I found myself constantly smiling as I moved through these pages. The paths that the three authors took in their lives is a gift to the dharma as much as the dharma has been a gift to them.”
—Kazu Haga, author of Healing Resistance: A Radically Different Response to Harm

“To live without fear in a world that is full of fear is not easy. Reading this book we
learn about three people who aspire deeply to do that. Following in their footsteps,
we give rise to compassion that spurs us on to action.”
—Sister Annabel Laity aka Sister Chan Duc, senior Dharma teacher in the Plum Village tradition and author of True Virtue: The Journey of an English Buddhist Nun

“‘In “trialogue,’ the authors’ individual life narratives are ignited and amplified. You can see the sparks fly! Using street wisdom, gathas, music, food, and intergenerational guidance, through their relationship and care for us all, Brown, Gomez, and Lingo offer the Buddha as a Black woman, and it is about time!”
—Pamela Ayo Yetunde, ThD, editor of Black and Buddhist
