To Be Less Polarized, We Must Humanize (with Esther Perel)
Baratunde ends Season One focused on the state of our relationships, a key pillar of how to citizen, and thus the health of our society after the most contentious election in modern history. In conversation with world-renowned relationship expert, Esther Perel, they discuss how to repair relationships in this moment, and how choosing to listen and humanize each other is not only how to citizen, but enlightened self-interest.   Show Notes + Links We are grateful to Esther Perel for joining us! Follow her @EstherPerelOfficial on IG or @estherperel on Twitter. or find more of her work at EstherPerel.com.  We will post this episode, a transcript, show notes and more at howtocitizen.com. Please show your support for the show in the form of a review and rating. It makes a huge difference with the algorithmic overlords!  INTERNAL ACTIONS  What is your model of relationships? Were you raised to believe in self-reliance and autonomy or interdependence and loyalty? Do you conceive of yourself as an “I” trying to develop a “We” or the other way around?   Take inventory of the relationships in your life.  Identify relationships in your life that are polarized over politics. Determine which make you truly unsafe that you must let go, then focus on those where you are still committed to some level of relationship and you can still see possibility. In those relationships, make the choice to humanize the person, listen, and find common ground, no matter how small. Reflect on your own behavior and language. Can you acknowledge any responsibility for the state of the relationship?   Examine your own perspectives about people who vote differently than you.  What about your view or beliefs about “these people” makes you fearful? If these thoughts were reversed, would they sound fair or accurate to you? Can you imagine another dimension to one of them as to why they vote or behave the way they do?    EXTERNAL ACTIONS Choose to deepen one or two relationships with people who voted differently from you. Instead of ignoring how a loved one voted, practice engaging through questions, not arguments. Be curious. Remember the question from Eric Liu in Ep 2: “what are you afraid of?” and add “what do you hope for?” and “what do you care about?” Build and invest in relationships outside of politics. We need more excuses to connect with each other beyond politics. In our second episode, Eric Liu asked us to start a club, any club. Do it. If you’re already in one or more, good for you. Stay connected to others through the common interests you share. Invest in those relationships.  ------------------------------------------------------ If you take any of these actions, share that with us - action@howtocitizen.com.

Episode 60: Nanabah Bulman
Hello and welcome to the Baha’i Blogcast with me your host, Rainn Wilson. In this series of podcasts I interview members of the Baha’i Faith and friends from all over the world about their hearts, and minds, and souls, their spiritual journeys, what they’re interested in, and what makes them tick. In this episode, I'm joined via zoom by the wonderful Nanabah Bulman, a Navajo Baha'i who's been actively engaged in service to her people, especially with the youth. Nanabah tells us about life on the reservation, and shares Navajo culture and beliefs, and what we can learn from the Native Americans. She tells us the Navajo legend of the Twin Brothers, and explains how she strives to live up to the meaning of her name. I hope you enjoy this awesome conversation!

Man is organic with the world. His inner life moulds the environment and is itself also deeply affected by it. The one acts upon the other and every abiding change in the life of man is the result of these mutual reactions." -Shoghi Effendi * QUOTE: "We must build the capacity to truly hear and acknowledge the voices of those who have directly suffered from the effects of racism. This capacity should manifest itself in our schools, the media, and other civic arenas, as well as in our work and personal relations. This should not end with words, but lead to meaningful, constructive action." -National Spiritual Assembly of the Baha'is of the United States, 19 June, 2020 Be sure to subscribe to the Baha’i Blogcast for more episodes on: * YouTube: http://bit.ly/2JTNmBO * iTunes: http://apple.co/2leHPHL * Soundcloud: https://bit.ly/30dX0G4 * Spotify: http://spoti.fi/2IXRAnb If you would like to find out more about the Baha'i Faith visit BAHAI.ORG, and for more great Baha'i-inspired content, check out BAHAIBLOG.NET: http://bahaiblog.net/ Thanks for listening! -Rainn Wilson

227 - People, Profit and Purpose: A Conversation with Mike Thakur
On this podcast, I’m always trying to connect you with top leaders in art, business, and ministry to build you up and encourage you along in your journey, and this week is certainly no different. Mike Thakur may not be a leader in the art world, but his example of entrepreneurship fused with faith is a clear picture of what thriving with a Kingdom-mindset is all about. A few years ago, Mike had this crazy idea. What if he could use the power of entrepreneurship to create PROFIT that would fuel his PURPOSE to help PEOPLE.  Mike Thakur did just that as the CEO of WorkLodge and Founder at the Gabriel Project.   I can’t wait for you to hear Mike talk about his mission to change lives through entrepreneurship and sustainable social enterprise. You can connect with Mike online at www.MikeThakur.com *Are You Ready to Write Your Own Story of Profit, Purpose, & People?* Mike’s story is just another example of what it means to truly thrive as a Kingdom-minded believer. You don’t have to forsake following your dreams and serving others in the pursuit of building a profitable and thriving art business. The problem is that most folk just don’t know where to start.  That’s why I’ve pulled together the best art, marketing, and ministry leaders in the country for two days packed full of practical teaching and encouragement. The best part is that you can join in without having to pack your bags or leave your home. It all happens online at the 2021 Thriving Christian Artist Conference. Make plans now to join us on March 5th - 6th. Click Here to Learn More: https://www.matttommeymentoring.com/tcaconference.html Support the show (https://www.matttommeymentoring.com/)

#167: Red Star Avant Garde
So much of the story we hear about China today concerns Covid-19, or the economy—how over the past few decades, it has risen from poverty and ruin to become a global powerhouse. But there’s a story beneath the surface, of the artistic avant-garde that resisted rule from above and inspired generations of ordinary Chinese citizens to seek freedom of expression. From their countryside re-education posts to the abandoned warehouses of Beijing and the short-lived Democracy Wall, Chinese artists flourished at the edge of acceptability—until the entire edifice came crashing down with the Tiananmen Square massacre. Madeleine O’Dea joins us to talk about her book, The Phoenix Years, which follows the lives of nine contemporary Chinese artists to tell the story of how art shaped a nation. Visit the episode page for portraits and archival images of the artists and their work. Go beyond the episode: * Madeleine O’Dea’s The Phoenix Years: Art, Resistance, and the Making of Modern China * Peruse the exhibition catalogue for the seminal 1993 Hong Kong show, “China’s New Art, Post-1989” (now out of print) * Guo Jian’s artist website * Xhang Ziaogang’s work on artnet * Aniwar’s work on Artsy, if you’re looking to buy * Listen to our first China-focused episode, “Unlikely Encounters,” for an interview with Julian Gewirtz the least likely visitor to the People’s Republic: Milton Friedman Tune in every week to catch interviews with the liveliest voices from literature, the arts, sciences, history, and public affairs; reports on cutting-edge works in progress; long-form narratives; and compelling excerpts from new books.
