… is built into the fabric of the founding of this country and persists today in ways large and small. Each of us has a different relationship to racism and our reactions and ability to respond to incidents of racism vary. Most recently, the lives and deaths of #BreonnaTaylor, #GeorgeFloyd, #TonyMcDade have made the national news. When our hearts truly open to the realities of the deaths of Black people at the hands of the police, it is unthinkable.

“Monica Biswas is an incredibly talented coach who held a sacred space for me to get in touch with my own racial bias and conditioned upbringing. … This is not easy work. Monica held me in my work with compassion and non-judgement while keeping me honest. She gave me tools to use to calm down my nervous system and treat myself with gentleness while looking at some things that I am not proud. She always encouraged me to stick with it and had faith that I have the resilience required to come out a better and more humane human being on the other side. I am grateful to Monica and her coaching and strongly recommend working with her.”
