At Columbia University, during the opening session of Emotionally Healthy Activist we covered the 6 components of emotionally healthy activism that emerge out of Emotionally Healthy Spirituality as well as their emotionally unhealthy opposites. We will focus on pride, narcissism, and lack of prudence (hurry) as three key components that make our resistance toxic and unhelpful in our world today.

In Part 2, we’ll be looking at the necessary movement from “Unconscious Incompetence to Unconscious Competence”. This is necessary because often we don't know what we don't know and sometimes that can hurt people. Our ignorance and race, class, sexuality, politics, religion, faith and more can lead to unintentional hurt, emotional and physical distance and long lists of misunderstandings that we all are familiar with. So how do we cultivate a posture of curiosity and learning and combat our culture of judgment, condemnation, fear and prejudice? Let's work on it together!
