As we in the United States enter the holiday season in politically divided times, it can be useful to remember that there are
significant opportunities amidst the obvious challenges of engaging with friends and family who hold a worldview and express
beliefs very different from our own. It can be useful to remember that there are more and less skillful ways of navigating
these moments of connection.
After seeing this, I think that regardless of where one falls along the political and religious spectrum, there is something useful to be gleaned from the conversation in this video. I do recommend listening all the way through in order to benefit, so check this out when you have 20 minutes before you head to the holiday dinner table.
May we listen, may we use it, and may we grow into new relating with each other that is greater and kinder and wiser than we're living in this moment. Wishing you each safe travels, courageous connections, excellent self-care, and lots of peace and joy this holiday season. Breathe deeply, practice often, and be well.
