Susan notes: See the end for attribution.
For the longest time, it seemed to me that my life was just about to start. My real life; the one in which I would be happy.

There's an angry divisive tension in the air that threatens to make modern politics impossible. Elizabeth Lesser explores the two sides of human nature within us (call them "the mystic" and "the warrior”) that can be harnessed to elevate the way we treat each other.
She shares a simple way to begin real dialogue -- by going to lunch with someone who doesn't agree with you, and asking them three questions to find out what's really in their hearts.
For more than three decades, Elizabeth Lesser has worked with leading figures in the field of healing self and society.
Elizabeth Lesser is the co-founder of Omega Institute, the US’ largest lifelong learning center focusing on health, wellness, spirituality, creativity and social change.
