How do you remind yourself that we are one—even with those we struggle to like? 

On this episode, Dr. Donny Bryant and Dr. Barbara Holmes are joined in conversation by Dr. Liza J. Rankow. Together they explore the concept of mysticism and its relevance to social justice and the uncertainties of our world. Dr. Rankow emphasizes the importance of direct experience with the divine and how that experience can inform and sustain our work for a more just world; highlighting that the current state of the world demands a shift from oppositional dualism to a paradigm of reverence, kinship, and belonging to the wholeness of life.
