    Women's Stories- Podcast # 656

    Women's Stories- Podcast # 656

    Cathy and Todd discuss why a wider perspective (instead of a personal narrative) is needed when we talk about the potential overturning of Roe v Wade and reproductive rights. They discuss why having proximity and understanding of other people’s experiences can develop our compassion and desire to support rather than harm. They process how in the end we all want the same things (love, family, wellness), but we tend to turn on each other instead of band together in establishing a collective good.

I really enjoy Zen Parenting Radio podcasts. Kathy and Todd give insight to where kids are coming from, realistic expectations and how to get along better with your kids.
I do not always agree with their views but it is very interesting to listen and helps me understand my kids.
Thx so much.
