Home is Here builds on foundational Buddhist teachings – the Four Noble Truths and the Eightfold Path – offering an intersectional frame to help you embody antiracist practices and tend to your own healing under racism and oppression.

Grounded in practice, memoir, and mindful self-help skill-building, Rev. Liên Shutt’s Engaged Four Noble Truths illuminate a path toward healing and liberation. She shares her own experiences with anti-Asian hate – as a teen riding her bike, meditating in whitewashed monasteries – and asks, what does it mean to attend to our suffering in body, heart, and mind when racism can cause such intense hurt and pain? What does it look like to heal?

While written mainly for Asian American Buddhists and other BIPOC practitioners, Home is Here moves us all from knowing and contemplation to a place of action and wholeness.
