Healing Justice offers a framework and practices for change makers who want to transform oppression, trauma, and burnout. Concerned with both the possibilities and limits of mindfulness and yoga for self-care, the book attends to the whole self of the practitioner, including the body, mind-heart, spirit, community, and natural world.
