Crossing the Great Divide: Cory Lockhart on Compassionate Communication for Contentious Times

Our nation, our communities, and our families are divided more deeply now than they have been in decades, pitting us against each other exactly at a time when cooperation couldn’t be more important to address the COVID-19 pandemic, racial justice, climate change, and many other pressing social and ecological needs. In this community conversation with a live Zoom audience, we speak with Cory Lockhart, who is an artist, writer, public speaker, peace activist and educator, about how compassionate, heart-centered, non-violent ways of communicating, rooted in contemplative spiritual practice, can help repair the torn fabric of our personal and civic relationships.
