Today, Dr. Paula Christian Kliger and Lori Blumenstein Bott, LMSW, discuss the concept of sharing power, and its relevance in our current climate.
We open with an excerpt from Isabel Wilkerson’s book Caste (Amazon link below), comparing our country to a beautiful home with flaws in its foundation.
Sometimes, when we retreat to our own corners, surrounded by those of similar perspectives, we get scared by people who are different than us. And we react accordingly, sometimes harkening back to old vulnerabilities. This, of course, links back to our self-study model. Think back to your school days, and how different students would react when called on.
In order to learn from others and make the world a better place, we must learn to accept our own vulnerabilities, triggers, and imperfections.
