Dr. Hargons’ (formerly Crowell) Black Lives Matter mindfulness meditation was featured in a Huffington Post article this week.
Another unarmed black person ― this time a 15-year-old in Texas ― was killed this weekend by a police officer. When incidents like this occur, they can lead black Americans to feel a frustrating mix of despair, anger and hopelessness.
Dr. Candice Crowell, a professor at the University of Kentucky, was intent on creating a way for black Americans to cope with these devastating news stories. She created the “Black Lives Matter Meditation for Healing Racial Trauma” to help them attend to their spiritual health.
