Cheryl Giles – Licensed Clinical Psychologist
What does it mean to be Black and Buddhist in our today’s world? Cheryl Giles, licensed clinical psychologist and Senior Lecturer on Pastoral Care and Counseling at Harvard Divinity School knows first hand. She’s one of the editors of and contributors to “Black & Buddhist – What Buddhism Can Teach Us About Race, Resilience, Transformation and Freedom.” It’s the first anthology of writings by African/American Buddhists. Cheryl’s personal story, “They Say The People Could Fly,” is powerful, moving and inspiring. And…so is our candid conversation.
