Called &quot;one of the wisest voices on social evolution&quot; by On Being's Krista Tippett and dubbed &quot;the most vocal and most intriguing African-American Buddhist in America,&quot; by Library Journal, angel Kyodo williams is a maverick spiritual wisdom teacher, master trainer and &quot;race whisperer.&quot; She is the founder of Transformative Change and guiding teacher of New Dharma.

Her current work, Radical Dharma: Talking Race, Love, and Liberation ignited a reconciliation on race in Buddhist, Yoga, spiritual and activist communities Her breakthrough critically-acclaimed first book, Being Black: Zen and the Art of Living with Fearlessness and Grace, has been hailed as &quot;a classic&quot; by Buddhist teacher Jack Kornfield, and &quot;an act of love&quot; by Alice Walker.

williams is a visionary leader of Transformative Social Change: applying inner awareness practice to broad-based social change. Calling for a paradigm shift that &quot;changes the way change is done,&quot; angel envisions the building of a presence-centered social justice movement as the foundation for personal freedom, a just society and the healing of divisions of race, class, faith and politic. She notes, &quot;Without inner change, there can be no outer change. Without collective change, no change matters.&quot;

angel's work engages at the root, field and resource levels of social transformation. She is a master awareness trainer and has developed fearlessMeditation and fearlessYoga systems as nonreligious, practical, accessible alternatives to dominant culture.

Her work has been widely covered, including in The New York Times, Boston Globe, Ms., Essence, Village
