Jim Wayne on Kindness and Care in Politics, Mental Healthcare, and Leadership

Jim Wayne is a psychotherapist, business owner, a novelist, and for almost three decades until 2019, an elected representative in the Kentucky House. He’s been a tireless advocate for tax reforms, concern for the poor, and mental health care concerns. He’s also a person for whom prayer, meditation, and religious belonging have played an important role in the person he is, the commitments he holds, and how he does his work. In this conversation, Jim reflects on how his faith and contemplative practice are woven into a life lived in service to others.
