Cyrus Webb reviews Demystifying Diversity

When it comes to the topic of diversity it can honestly go in so many directions. What I would say about Daralyse Lyons’ new book Demystifying Diversity: Embracing our Shared Humanity is that she strives to break it down to more than a US against THEM and see the why.

Through the interviews and her own personal observations we see how being singled out or labeled as impacted others. It also does something I wasn’t expecting. It turns the tables repeatedly on the reader, forcing us to ask what would we do or who would we be. In horrific events in history would be the one who was the oppressed or would we be the oppressor? Would we stand up for what is right or will be stay by? These questions are difficult but necessary if we are going to see things really move forward in a positive (and productive) way.

There’s another thing that Daralyse discusses in the book that is sure to step on some toes. I know it did mine. That being the words we use to categorize things, like being “good” for eating a salad or “bad” for not. The impact of what we say as well as what we do can impact the way people see themselves and feel about themselves.

Bottom line is we’re ALL a work in progress. This book challenges us to identify the work we ALL have to do and get about doing it.

"...a profound, deep awakening and inspiration..."

On our life’s journey there are major turning points. Falling, fracturing her hip, and then having surgery were experiences that forced Barbara Sinor to travel an unknown path. These experiences took her beyond her normal life to exploring emotions and thoughts in foreign regions. While Barbara was confined to a rehabilitation facility to recover, her inner journey took her through territories of fear, doubt, pain, guilt, and down other emotional paths. Regardless of your personal struggle, the lessons in Inspirational Musings offer courage and insights to awaken and transform.

"Drawing on words from many teachers and adding her own honest stories and reflection during a time of convalescence, Barbara offers us a small book to dip into when we want to go deeper, when we need to find healing for this moment. Inspirational Musings is a book to slip into your pocket or bag as you travel the journey that is taken by human beings."
--Oriah “Mountain Dreamer” House, author, The Invitation

"Sinor's poetic musings around topics such as Compassion, Suffering, Beauty, Joy, Awakening, and Faith not only inspire us, but awaken our souls to discover meaning and purpose both during and after our pain."
--Holli Kenley, M.A., MFT, author, Daughters Betrayed By Their Mothers

"Reading this booklet of insights reached up and grabbed me within the first few pages. I experienced a profound, deep awakening and inspiration of some buried feelings I didn’t know existed within my being."
--Reverend Peggy Tennent, Astara
