PODCAST: Peacemindedly with Sara S. Jamishidi
When a conversation takes a turn into sometimes uncomfortable and often contentious topics of race, religion, gender, sexuality, and politics, it can be difficult to know what to say or how to respond to someone you disagree with. In a conversation with Sara Jamshidi, Diane Musho Hamilton, Gabriel Menegale Wilson, and Kimberly Loh discuss Compassionate Conversation tools we can use to manage a difficult conversation.
Addressing the long history of injury and pain for marginalized groups, the authors explore topics like social privilege, power dynamics, and, political correctness allowing us to be more mindful in our conversations. Each chapter contains practices and reflection questions to help readers feel more prepared to talk through polarizing issues, ultimately encouraging us to take risks, to understand and recognize our deep commonalities, to be willing to make mistakes, and to become more intimate with expressing our truths, as well as listening to those of others.
