Episode #25: Us versus them, and the middle way
Sometimes it feels like the divides between groups of thought are getting wider, conversations devolving into people shouting opposing views at each other and getting nowhere. In such a situation, how can we move towards healing the deep emotional/psychological/social/environmental/systematic/political wounds and traumas which we all face?
On this episode of the Contemplative Creative podcast, host David Quiring discusses this prevalent problem, and how we might be a part of the solution. We can never escape the bias within ourselves, but we can acknowledge it and adjust our conduct accordingly knowing that it's there.

So glad this exists!
I find I turn to podcasts for inspiration on living, working, being - and this podcast definitely supports that! While the episodes are short, they are long enough because they really pack a lot of thought into each one; I find that listening to this podcast I have to sit down and really tune in, unlike other podcasts which I can multitask with and not miss much - I appreciate this because it gives me a chance to slow down and take some time to reflect. There's always a lot of food for thought in each episode, and delivered in a kind, inquisitive, real way that is not at all preachy or sanctimonious. I look forward to each episode! Thanks to Contemplative Creative for putting this out into the world!
