S2 Ep. 8: Halleluyah: Fueling Our Social Activism through Gratitude and Praise

Episode 29 · November 7th, 2019 · 24 mins 29 secs

About this Episode

What drives us toward justice? Often, we're driven by a sense of the world's brokenness that keeps us up at night. In our conversation with Rabbi Alex Weissman, we explore an alternative motivation: what gets us up in the morning? In a conversation based on his essay for Evolve, Halleluyah, and his other work around spirituality and activism, we discuss how deeply-felt experiences of gratitude and blessing can move us toward empathetic action.

See below for a link to a guided meditation led by Rabbi Weissman for the 2018 cohort of Reset: Spiritual Practice for Activists.
