This month on the podcast we’re sharing a conversation with someone who has been hugely influential to us, Parker Palmer, a writer who works at the intersection of activism, social change and spirituality. Three decades ago, Parker helped establish the Centre for Courage and Renewal, which runs programs for people to come together in community and learn to lead from within. Here, Parker and Dumbo Feather editor Nathan talk about everything from eldership in the modern age to the importance of showing up in the world as your true self. Their conversation—centred around Parker’s new book, On the Brink of Everything: Grace, Gravity and Getting Old—is a timely one, recorded just weeks before Parker’s 80th birthday.
Parker’s latest book is On the Brink of Everything: Grace, Gravity and Getting Old can be found here.
