Join Rabbi Michael Lerner and Cat Zavis as we explore how we can co-create a caring society - one that centers the needs of people and the planet rather than corporate interests. How might our economic, education, legal, and political systems look if guided by love, generosity, empathy, justice, and peace? We discuss nuanced, psycho-spiritual analyses of the political landscape, moving beyond materialist-reductionism and shame. Come imagine with us.
In this episode, "Why aren't more people progressive? Part 2", we step back and look at the dynamics of human life in the past 10,000 years that continue to shape how we understand our options for achieving security, safety, and peace. We then move to a discussion of the importance of building a social change movement that moves social energy from fear to hope and builds a loving community so more people are inspired to participate and join us.
Welcome to Imagine with Us podcast with Rabbi Michael Lerner and Cat Zavis. We’re excited to bring you our first episode in which we discuss how it is that over 70 million people voted for a candidate that so many more people deem to be both corrupt and frighteningly dangerous. How can we understand the lure of hate-filled politics beyond the narrow analysis that “all his supporters are racist or stupid” and respond to this moment with empathy, revolutionary love, and justice so we can build a future that embraces us all?
