Navigating a Smear Campaign

Guests: Barbara Marx Hubbard & Marc Gafni

One of the most dangerous problems we face in the world is extremism on behalf of belief. In many cases, extremists convince themselves that another faith or political system or individual is ‘evil’, and that they are justified in destroying them by any means necessary. During this conversation, Maureen we will talk to Marc Gafni and Barbara Marx Hubbard about the smear campaign Marc and the Center for Integral Wisdom. What emerged was a much more hopeful conversation. They are modeling the behaviors they teach as they confront this challenge and they are working to leverage what would for others be a crippling crisis and share with others the culture of collaboration and unique contribution to a conscious world. They are talking about an evolution of our culture! For me this is a story of personal resilience and how they used a crisis to precede transformation. They were both required to model the concepts they were teaching in a very personal way and they are here to share their story.
