Yoga Cocaine

Jessica is an incredible character with a powerful story. Following her journey tugged at my heart and although the subjects addressed (addiction, relapse, recovery, trauma) were highly charged, the author’s irreverent way of writing also infused humor into the character’s voice. The book, like life, was dramatic, comedic and everything in between. If it were possible to give 6 stars, I would.

Product Details

Through empathy and understanding, we can create a more inclusive world. But empathy and understanding are not purely intellectual—they require application. In the Demystifying Diversity Workbook, Biracial journalist Daralyse Lyons offers tangible tools for moving beyond biases and increasing one's capacity for connection. This workbook is meant to act as a companion to Demystifying Diversity: Embracing our Shared Humanity, in which Daralyse Lyons reveals her most important takeaways from her interviews with more than 100 individuals about a variety of topics related to diversity, equity and inclusion. Here, you are invited to go deeper, to move from awareness to action and to develop your capacity for authentic connection. It is in this space that empathy and equity become possible.

"We're Venn diagrams in Venn diagrams. And so, if you can't find those connections, it means you're not looking."
-- Alisa Kraut, assistant curator at the National Museum of American Jewish History

"Every single one of us is personally implicated in this."
-- Cinder Kuss, liberation and social justice activist

"I don't think you can be an honest observer of the human condition without being overwhelmed at times by the cruelty that gets visited onpeople; this seems to be so counter to who we are. We're beautiful.Every one of us is beautiful. There is nothing like a human being in this world that we experience. We are remarkable."
-- Dennis Moritz, poet and playwright

"Demystifying Diversity: Embracing Our Humanity is an important step in our collective, arduous, complex journey towards inclusivity."
-- Kyle V. Hiller, award winning arts & culture journalist, interdisciplinary artist, author of The Recital
