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.
