Author and International trainer and advocate for lasting, Joe Weston, joins Gina Mazza to discuss Joe’s new book and body of work, Fierce Civility: Transforming our Global Culture from Polarization to Lasting Peace. Polarized in a perpetual cycle of anxiety and uncertainty – attacking, fighting, wounding, paralysis – how do we find our grounding, break the gridlock of polarization, find our way back to one another, and make world peace our reality?
Having worked in various areas around the world, including conflict-ridden regions and marginalized communities, Joe shares how he has been able to distill his spiritual practices and experiences into practical skills and strategies that cut through the confusion and mental constructs of our time and get us back into our hearts, reinvigorating the process of healing, reconciliation and the emergence of new solutions. Along with this dialogue, Joe will lead us through a practice that helps us anchor our highest ideals and bring them into practical action.
