#14: Rich Bartlett — Micro-solidarity, Growing Up and Reconditioning Our Relational Inheritance

Episode description and synopsis


In a world where it can seem we have lost touch with what it means to be together, to live, work, and grow in community, practices to remember and recondition our relational patterns seem crucial.


Rich is a Co-Founder of Enspiral, The Hum, and a brilliant thinker and facilitator when it comes to re-thinking social systems, designing spaces for meaningful culture, and practical ways to re-build community from the ground up.  


Join us as we explore questions of building “micro-solidarity,” circles of practice, and emotional intimacy for “growing up together.” We touch on some of the intrapersonal threads that need to be acknowledged if we are to re-pattern our ways-of-being-together for community, as well as what we might learn from feminism and grassroots activist movements when it comes to community resiliency.  


This is a good’n – grab a tea and join us for a hope-giving conversation.
