Caring for Our Mental Health Through Mindfulness, Nonviolence and Spirituality

How to Talk Politics with Choice and Freedom

Join host Timothy Regan, with guests Jim and Jori Manske for this live episode with callers. Dialogue and human connection is essential for the basic functioning of our families, our workplaces, and our democracy. It is more important than ever with forces of deception and fear actively trying to sow division and chaos in the union of our country. Too many of us decline to discuss “politics” with the very people we know most and love. Relationships get strained when we don't know how to have a good dialogue. So, to help you out this evening, Nonviolent Communication trainers Jim and Jori Manske will share some skills that will help you respond when someone says something hard to hear. You have choices when someone says words that throw you off, get you mad, sad, scared, or disturbed. SO! Please kick back, give yourself the gift of some time to learn and reflect, because we are going to demonstrate 4 ways to respond to a hard-to-hear message.

The Civilian at War

Host Timothy Regan describes a pattern of human thinking and communication that seems to be increasing in our society that can lead to violence by civilians toward other citizens. We then explore some forms of medicine for civilians caught in this pattern, so we can create connection and dialogue instead of tragic violence. There are at least 3 ingredients to violent action from Timothy's perspective: unmet human needs, combined with the pain of these unmet needs, combined with certain kinds of thinking (beliefs, blame, and enemy images). Timothy's detailed presentation reviews these three ingredients, and he offers medicine for relief from this pattern, and listeners call in live to help clarify this pattern.
