Have you ever struggled with wanting to bring up politics but are not sure how to do so without ruining a friendship or causing an argument?  Do you find that your emotions get too wrapped up and it’s hard to hold back, especially when you disagree with what the opposite party is saying?  Well there’s good news. Sarah and Beth talk about how through practice you can change those unhealthy habits, and have constructive conversations


In this interview Sarah and Beth discuss the importance of us examining or own values so that we can engage in political conversations in a way that is respectful to others and ourselves.  To do so they truly believe you have to turn inwards before engaging with others, to discover what is going on with your own values, and how to center yourself first.
