Healing the Heart of Democracy

Healing the Heart of Democracy

A nonpartisan effort to bring back civility and relationship

“Where have ‘We the People’ gone – we who have the power to reclaim democracy for its highest purposes, unless we allow ourselves to be divided and conquered by the enemy within and among us?” ~Parker Palmer, “Healing the Heart of Democracy”

There is something broken in our society; it has been broken for a long time. Deep divides, disengagement, and cynicism within a system that was built “of the people, by the people, and for the people.” Within neighborhoods and communities, we have the ability to live in such a way that we can reclaim a “politic worthy of the human soul.” Join us as we investigate the “Five Habits of the Heart” from which democracy grows – habits that invite us to relationship, understanding, and growth.

Community Conversation: Sunday, May 21st, 2017 from 6 to 8pm

We are better when we walk together. Join us for an evening of civil discourse as we reflect on our capacity as citizens to effect change – not just with voting and activism, but with the values we live every day. Not only is this conversation nonpartisan, it is also non-religious. We seek to host meaningful conversation amongst the members of our neighborhood. We have also invited local elected officials – who will not be speaking, but will spend the evening listening. You must be┬áregistered ┬áto participate, click here to get registered for free.
