Mindful Politics -- Can we Bring Mindfulness into Political Discussions?

The Everyday Mindfulness Show brings a cast of folks together to discuss issues we might face in everyday life, and how we can practice greater mindfulness. With heightened political turmoil and vitriol in the past year plus, three of us hashed out what mindfulness (and compassion) can look like in political conversations. 

This is from the show notes: It’s no secret – politics can be anything BUT mindful. Have you found yourself unfollowing friends on social media? Is it hard to not get sucked into the mud slinging? How do we or should we acknowledge opposing views? Is it possible to maintain mindfulness during a political discussion is a cavernous topic! The show host, Mike Domitrz, kicks things off with this quote: “Human kindness has never weakened the stamina or softened the fiber of a free people. A nation does not have to be cruel to be tough,” by Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
