Simply put, Dr. Gail Parker 's book is an Awakening. Empowering. Inspiring hope. Life-changing!
Dr. Parker offers us a gift of a lifetime! She engages us in a journey into the deep historical underpinnings and progression of racism, and ethnic and race-based trauma, to ground us in an awareness of the enduring visible and invisible "wounds" to mind, body, emotion and spirit. She then guides us through, onto a path of HOPE, anchored in the inner work of "self-study" and the "healing balm" of Restorative Yoga.
Dr. Parker's in-depth exploration of trauma and its effects ... embedded in all our intergenerational lives ... made me want to cry. I could identify with the pain, but I was also touched by her care, extraordinary insights, and the wisdom she gives away so generously.
Gail Parker speaks from an intuitive and open heart and she will awaken in you a shift of heart and mind that will move you toward the powerful healing potential of a "Restorative Yoga" practice. Truly Life-changing!--Paula Christian Kliger PhD, psychologist, psychoanalyst and organizational consultant, author of Power Your Heart, You Power Your Mind: Self-Study then Build a Bridge to Someone (SEDA Press, 2018)
