Episode 23: The Fierce Vulnerability of Beloved Community with Kazu Haga

In this episode of Fierce Compassion, we delve into the fierce vulnerability of Beloved Community with nonviolence and restorative justice practitioner Kazu Haga. Drawing on stories of transformative reconciliation, Haga demonstrates our human capacity to transmute even the deepest harms through fierce vulnerability. Haga explores the fractal relationship between personal and systemic change, and how a stance of curiosity, compassion, and commitment to Beloved Community can sustain us and help us find our place in a diverse ecosystem of social transformation. Join us in this rich conversation as we discover how unhealed trauma impacts our world and how each of us can find our place in the great work of individual and collective healing.
