    What Was Your First Memory of Race?This opening question is the heart and soul of “Room at the Table.” The word equity is thrown around in multiple media outlets, corporations, and non-profits. Diversity, Equity, Inclusion… Many shy away from these terms, convinced that they already understand. In truth, these concepts are a mystery to most. It’s more important than ever to grasp the vital, far-reaching aim of the equity lens. What does this work look like? What does it sound like? What actions must equity leaders take to turn the future of leadership into a reality?With public health injustices on the rise, grounded equity leadership can forge the path to a more healthy, understanding, and effective outlook for all of our futures. In her groundbreaking work, Dr. Renee Branch Canady, CEO of the Michigan Public Health Institute, shares through research and candid stories what it’s like to be on the front lines as an equity public health leader. In a culture centered on optics, Dr. Canady brings to light the true act of doing for the sake of change.Points of focus include:• The innovative concept of “Leadering” • Using our outrage to enact change • Seeing, saying, and doing differently • Acting courageously in the face of institutional racism • Leading with authenticity • Harboring the conviction to move equity work forward, one step at a timeIn Dr. Canady’s words, “Health equity leadership is a new leadership in this space that’s predicated by what’s happening at this moment. It hasn’t happened before. Focusing on others, a willingness to be courageous, and a willingness to do something that hasn’t been done before is a grey space in health equity leadership.”“Room at the Table” addresses this grey space with unflinching honestly and hope.

    William the First, who was also called William the Conqueror and in some cases William the Bastard, was the first Norman emperor of England, ruling from 1066 till his death in 1087. Around this time, many wars and battles were waged over the kingdom and distribution of territories in Europe. France, the Anglo-Saxons, and Scandinavian troops were engaged in raids, struggles, and battles to claim their lands and gains. 
    One of the most significant times in William’s life was that as the Duke of Normandy. His politics, terms, rules, and treaties were different and refreshing for comparison to how things had been done previously. 
    I invite you to learn more about this first king of England, who lived almost 1,000 years ago.

    Most books about Kung Fu or Karate deal with techniques or history. Few examine the underlying purpose of these arts, or approach them as a tool for spiritual, rather than physical, development. Barefoot Zen is a brave new approach to the martial arts, which clearly demonstrates that the traditional movements of both Kung Fu and Karate, contained in the solo choreographed sequences of movements known as forms (or kata), grew out of the spiritual practices of the Shaolin order of Buddhist monks and nuns. Nathan Johnson explains that this mystical and non-violent teaching is a profound and beautiful expression of Chan (Zen) Buddhism and its pur-suit of wisdom, peace, and enlightenment. Contrary to popular assumption, he contends that it was never intended to be an actual means of self-defense. Barefoot Zen bridges the gap between Kung Fu and Karate, and reveals their common origin through the disclosure of vital research material on three of the world's most important Karate kata. Part I explains the spiritual disciplines that contributed to what we know as the martial arts.Part II explains the creation of the art along with practical instruction for performing kata.Part III explains the formation of many of the world's Kung Fu styles. We learn that the original "empty hand art" was used as a method of kinetic meditation between pairs and was designed as a practical tool to assist practitioners in transcending the fear and insecurity of everyday living. Barefoot Zen makes the legacy of the Shaolin way accessible to all, releasing the art from the clutches of popular images and painful concerns about self-defense. The legendary courage of the Shaolin (Chan/Zen) order was not developed by fighting with enemies, but by not fighting!The Shaolin teaching was designed to free us from fear, the only true enemy.

    "It matters little where we pass the remnant of our days. They will not be many".
    A powerful lament for an imperilled way of life, the 1854 speech traditionally attributed to Chief Seattle of the Duwamish Tribe is a vital document in the history of the Indigenous peoples of North America. Chief Seattle's oration was delivered in the face of the impending loss of his people's land to the State of Washington, and it remains a profound meditation on the nature of time, colonialism, and religion.
