Queerly Beloved

Queerly Beloved: Softening the Global Heart with Joe Weston

Joe Weston is an international thought leader, facilitator, trainer, author, lecturer, consultant, coach, professor and—above all else—an advocate for lasting peace. With a career spanning 30+ years in the fields of conflict prevention, leadership, stress management and communication, he is a highly sought-after facilitator and has worked with groups ranging from NASA scientists to prison inmates. He’s the author of “Respectful Confrontation” and his newest book, “Fierce Civility”, which we focus on in this interview.  His Tedx Talk (linked below) is titled “A Cure for Chronic Niceness.”

On this episode of Queerly Beloved, we start by talking about my story of the work I’ve done with Joe and how it helped me connect with my embodied authentic power. We then hear about his journey in developing two main bodies of work and the books that express them. And what the evolution of his work has been like. We talk about purpose and approaching it from a place of being in greatest service to the higher will. 
 
 Next, we explore the global spiritual malnourishment he observes, where our global heart is being technologically overfed and spiritually under fed.  Then we get into the ways people can soften their hearts, what that look like, at what the value of it is.
 
Joe talks about his belief that it’s in your vulnerability where your true power is revealed. He shares a story that illustrates what’s needed for people to feel safe enough to step into their vulnerability. We end with the question, “How do you become a catalyst for fierce hope?” All these topics and more in this profound and powerful interview with my teacher and friend, Joe Weston.
