Today’s show is about what it means to be an advocate: why and how and with what intention we should speak up for the causes we care about.

We’ve pulled excerpts from three Commune courses:

• Finian Makepeace talks about the importance of the “second person” who makes an idea available to new, broader audiences.

• Marianne Williamson shares with us the difference between “speaking up” and “tearing down.”

• Suzanne Sterling offers advice for how to discover the authentic voice that lives within you.

We hope this episode gives you some tools and motivation to speak up with compassion—for yourself and for others. As Marianne Williamson says, “There's no religious or spiritual tradition anywhere that gives anyone a pass on addressing the suffering of other sentient beings.”
