This sixty-fourth episode is an excellent way to sustain your own personal heart-practices. We also hope it will be a supportive tool for you to offer to your clients, patients and colleagues.
At this time on the planet, there is increased separation, polarization, and emotional reactivity. Imagine being a congresswoman and having to navigate all the political maneuvering. How would you handle opposing political and social views from yours?
This episode is an eye-opening conversation about what can happen when we choose the power of love, compassion, and justice instead of suspicion and fear, even in the face of being misinterpreted.
In this episode, our guest, Illinois State Senator Patricia Van Pelt (Dr. Pat), talks with host Deborah Rozman, Ph.D., and shares how she faced a showdown – being shouted down on the senate chamber floor – and had to make another choice.
Hear what happened when she chose non-judgment and sincere listening. Dr. Pat describes how she had to learn to appeal to the humanity in others first – to uncover ways they could collaborate on new ideas. She offers us practical advice on how to better handle separation and polarization in society, perhaps even in our own families.
Her story is dynamic and inspiring: If we want to change the divided world around us, we must have compassion, release judgment and sincerely listen.
The episode closes with a heart meditation that we can use anytime to step into our heart’s intention for guidance on how we can dare to love more.
Dr. Patricia Van Pelt is an Illinois State Senator, a serial entrepreneur, an author, real estate developer, certified public accountant, and founder of The Season For Love Inc and Diamond VII Enterprises LLC, and co-founder and past-president of WaKanna For Life LLC.
