Today on Everyday KC, we focus on how to deal with our tumultuous culture. If you log on to facebook, or any online chat group, everyone seems so angry, stressed out and many fancy themselves to be experts at very complex political, religious or societal matters. 

Author, clincial psychologist, anthropologist and teacher, Mary Bray Pipher, PhD, takes on our planet's greatest problems with the skills of a truly gifted therapist. She knows why we avoid and deny the truth and she knows how we can heal ourselves and our communities.

We discuss her latest book, "The Green Boat: Reviving Ourselves in Our Capsized Culture"

Every day we are hit by a tidal wave of information, a great deal of which is troubling and traumatic. Yet our basic equipment—our bodies and brains—have not adapted. We simply are not built to respond well.  "The Green Boat" suggests that we can only be sane and healthy by reconnecting with these things. Our inner and outer lives are interconnected. Healing ourselves will require us to reweave the web of life around us.

You won't want to miss this inspirational visit with a visionary author about a fundamental concern for our time.
