Drawing from over 60 years of living out this message, Miles unpacks The Third Option. He provides an answer to the racial issue that divides our nation. This course will empower you to see common misconceptions and identify the privilege and pitfalls we all face. Start the journey to live out of your similarities.


    The facilitator guide will empower even beginners to guide their group on the journey of self-discovery. Complete with step by step instructions and challenges for personal reflection, this workbook will prepare you to grow in your personal competency in each area as you guide your group.


    Along with the facilitator’s guide, a training video is included that will empower you to start the conversation, teach you how to give honor to those with a different experience, celebrate our uniqueness and find our similarities. We encourage all participants to look inward at yourself rather than to someone else.


    A downloadable workbook that can be completed on a computer or phone. We will give you the tools to ask hard questions, start the conversation, and honor the unseen in others so that you can step into unity.


This is a 6 step Journey of Self-discovery. In an “US versus THEM'' culture, we are forced to operate in a ‘I win’ - ‘you lose’ paradigm. I wrote The Third option to provide exactly that, an option where everyone can win.

  • Similarity

    Participants should walk away more aware of the similarities they share with people they once considered as “those people." When people realize they have more similarities than differences, it is easier to RESPECT others the same as we RESPECT ourselves.

  • Grouping

    Participants are able to convert those considered ‘not like me’ into those ‘like me.’ When people ware empowered to see people ‘like me’ they can be intentional about destroying the walls of division. We desire intentional inclusivity.

  • Blind Spots

    Participants learn about their own blind spots and can intentionally improve how they honor others. When our eyes are open to our blind spots, we become more self-aware and FORGIVING to others.

  • Labels

    Participants become educated on the power of labels and intentionally describe others in a more honoring manner. When we understand the power of labels, we change in how we SPEAK more honorably about others and improve what we believe about them.

  • Brother's/Sister's Keeper

    Participants are empowered to confront dishonoring behavior toward others done by friends and family. Being a BROTHER’S/SISTER’S KEEPER empowers people to HONORABLY INTERVENE and be an active part of the SOLUTION.es.

  • Race Consultations

    Participants are empowered to have honoring race conversations by first having race consultations. When we learn to listen before we speak, that is when we actually LEARN
