In Episode 42 of the Metta Hour Podcast, “Rev Angel Kyodo Williams” Sharon has a conversation with Angel Kyodo Williams about political activism and spiritual practice. What is the interplay between activism and personal practice? In this talk recorded at the JCC in Manhattan, Sharon and Rev Angel Kyodo Williams, discuss the qualities of the two and what they bring to one another. On this week’s episode, we learn how to make radical change happen and love everyone in the process.
Rev. Angel Kyodo Williams, Sensei is a maverick dharma teacher, author, and founder of the Center for Transformative Change and co-author of her newest book, Radical Dharma: Talking Race, Love & Liberation. She applies wisdom teaching to intractable social issues at the intersections of climate change, racial and economic justice. By liberating our own hearts from all forms of marginalization, our wisdom and compassion will be liberated to inspire a truly transformed and awakened society. Rev. angel notes, “Love and Justice are not two. Without inner change, there can be no outer change. Without collective change, no change matters.”
