Called “the most intriguing (and vocal) African-American Buddhist” by Library Journal, angel Kyodo williams is an author, activist, master trainer and founder of Transformative Change. Her book, Radical Dharma: Talking Race, Love and Liberation, has ignited a long-overdue conversation on how the legacy of racial injustice and white supremacy plays out in society and prevents our collective awakening. She has been bridging the worlds of transformation and justice since her critically acclaimed book, Being Black: Zen and the Art of Living With Fearlessness and Grace was hailed as “an act of love” by Pulitzer Prize winner Alice Walker, and “a classic” by Buddhist pioneer Jack Kornfield. Rev. angel was the second black women to become a Zen “Sensei” or teacher, and applies wisdom teachings and embodied practice to intractable social issues at the intersections of racial, economic and climate justice. She is a preeminent thought leader of Transformative Social Change. Her 27 Days of Change online program and 3rd Way Leadership supports changemakers in inner meets outer change worldwide. Her work has been widely covered, including in The New York Times, Lion’s Roar, Boston Globe, Ms., and Essence.  Her work can be found at angelkyodowilliams.com
