Van Jones. Breaking Out of Our Resistance Bubble
In our inaugural session of the Waking Up in the World online event, Tami Simon speaks with CNN correspondent and Dream Corps founder Van Jones. Together they explore a much-needed convergence between spirituality and activism, as well as the very real challenges posed by our current political climate and our potential to create change. Jones also provides a powerful perspective on how we must break out of "resistance bubbles" and build our capacity to be with differing views. This inspirational and instructive conversation is not to be missed. Highlights include:* The need for spiritual people to become more active, and active people to become more spiritual
* Building a tolerance for difference--how to stay true to your values without succumbing to outrage and exhaustion
* The recent rise in hate groups and the creation of a #lovearmy
* Courage, power, and soulfulness--coming together to create real change
