There’s no time like the present to create a just and compassionate world! There’s no time like the present to be present!

In Empathy UnchainedHeal Your Trauma, Uplift the World, Dr. Felicia Darling shares her own and others’ stories about healing past hurts to live more empathetically in the present–and thus create a kinder world. She motivates us to have the courage and empathy to transform systems that exclude. She inspires us to follow our true calling. Her Empathy Unchained DEIA Conversation Deck prompts us to engage in constructive conversations that institutionalize inclusive practices. Teachin’ It! Breakout Moves that Break Down Barriers for Community College Students offers instructors innovative strategies to reach and teach all students. She illustrates her books with cartoons from her untamed Professor Funnies©.

Felicia speaks, writes, and researches about inclusion, belonging, education, and mental health advocacy. She teaches mindfulness practices that include her nourishing Little Points of Light Body Scan©, meditation, breathing, and Yoga.  She is a first-generation college student who realized her deferred dream to earn a PhD in Math Ed from Stanford University at 55. Also, she has a Fulbright for her ethnographic ressearch in a Yucatec Maya village.  Her work has been highlighted in Education Week, The Chronicle of Higher Ed, Inside Higher Ed, and WAMC Northeast Public Radio. In her day jobs, she teaches social justice precalculus at UC Berkeley and GED math in Spanish/English at SRJC.
