Maintaining Spiritual Wholeness As The World Comes Apart
Edited on Thu Feb-19-09 09:33 PM by Dover
A couple of interesting guests and subjects on Moyers tomorrow night (Friday, PBS) that I thought
might interest ASAH folks:


Bill Moyers sits down with Parker J. Palmer, founder and senior partner of the Center for Courage & Renewal, for a conversation about maintaining spiritual wholeness even as the economy and political order seem to come apart.


Robert G. Kaiser has been following Beltway politics for THE WASHINGTON POST for nearly 50 years. Bill Moyers talks with Kaiser about how our nations Capitol has succumbed to lobbyists and turned government into big business. Kaiser is author of SO DAMN MUCH MONEY: THE TRIUMPH OF LOBBYING AND THE CORROSION OF AMERICAN GOVERNMENT.

Some more info about the Center For Courage & Renewal:


When we reconnect who we are with what we do, we approach our lives and our work with renewed passion, commitment, and integrity.

Since 1997, the Center for Courage & Renewal has helped foster personal and professional renewal through retreats that offer the time and space to reflect on life and work. These retreats, called Courage to Teach, Courage to Lead, or Circles of Trust, are led by skilled facilitators and make use of poetry and stories, solitude, reflection, and deep listening.

Developed with author, educator, and activist Parker J. Palmer, PhD, and the Fetzer Institute, this approach was initially created to renew, sustain, and inspire public school teachers. Educators remain at the heart of our mission, but retreats are also offered to those in serving professions such as health care, clergy, and law, as well as to anyone yearning to become more wholehearted in their life and work.

1. This is important
to be at peace and to be connected. Glad to know people are doing this--it will help more people make the change.

2. "Deep listening". Such an extremely rare trait in our "culture"
yet I expect many here to understand it.

Thanks for the post.

5. Thanks, Dover. My husband's going to record it for me...
