In our culture of work and accomplishment, it can be easy for activists and active citizens to value busyness and action over reflection and awareness. In this discussion with Melody Porter, we will explore how practices of listening, meditation, and openness can make us more connected to the communities around us and the issues they experience. Through the work of Thich Nhat Hanh and others, we will learn how mindfulness can make us better understand issues and people; push for, accept and respond quickly to change; and renew our own souls. RSVP appreciated.
