Bonnitta Roy is back on our show for the second time, which we don’t do very often. But she is so tuned into what’s going on in the world, that we always have so much to talk to her about.
She is an award-winning author, philosopher, insight guide and international trainer, who’s focusing on building greater capacities for human sensemaking.
Today Bonnitta shares with us some details about her new written piece about human flourishing.
We also talk about the current social shift from global to local, what type of institutions we need right now, and how to engage in conversation about culture, race and validating different expressions.Gratitude and understanding is something different than this word 'privilege' that we throw around. - @BonnittaRoy Click To Tweet
