Guide to Grace-Filled Political Conversations - 071 Mind Love ♡ Modern Mindfulness

The last few years, almost any political conversation has just left me feeling drained. It just seems like we’re more divided than ever and you’re asking for trouble if you bring anything up, unless you’re in a room of people you already know is going to agree with you.The more we give up our ability to have these conversations with people that have a different point of view, the more divided we become because we’re less likely to be engaged with a viewpoint that’s not our own.Today we’re talking to Beth Silver and Sarah Stewart Holland, the authors of I Think You’re Wrong but I’m Listening. They’re two friends from college who ended up on two different sides of the political debate. They figured out how to have these discussions in a healthy way, and are here to share what they learned with us!So after the first few minutes, a tornado wiped out Sarah’s power, but the conversation flowed so well with Beth I don’t think it takes anything away. Plus, you still get both sides with Beth as the conservative viewpoint and me as the liberal viewpoint.And don’t worry, we’re not getting into the nitty gritty of triggering political topics. Moreso how to be able to talk about them.Today we will learn:How to find your political whyThe importance of being able to hold tensionHow to handle politics on social mediaSponsors:Four Sigmatic Mushroom Coffee: Use code MINDLOVE for 15% off your entire orderBlinkist.com/MINDLOVE to start your 7-day trialFitOn: Use code MINDLOVE for a free t5rial and 80% off a subscriptionShow Notes: https://mindlove.com/071Learn more about your ad choices.
