SORT BY Relevancy
In a society of people such as in America where emotion and intellect are often in marked opposition to one another, it is no wonder that finding common ground between opposing viewpoints is so difficult and challenging.
Yet, after all the many years that science has had since its vast discoveries on brain-mind research of the late twentieth century into the new millenium, the fact that we are still unable to reconcile the perceptions of both right brain, creative problem solving and the cold hard facts of the left may well be at the core of many of our present day problems.
Anastasia and Jack take up this issue of personal disparities and how they are reflected in our current social and political polarization problems.
Tonight's show is an abridged recording of an event that was part of the Beyond Barbie performance series, which was produced by artist Susan Singer. Thanks to Susan for sharing this Beyond Barbie event on The Authentic Woman.
Host Shannon Fisher shares stories of her experiences as an activist, lobbyist and community organizer - and offers solutions we can use in our personal interactions to reduce friction when discussing political topics. She then interviews linguist, Kathryn Ruud, about the use of language in political propaganda.
Using examples from the media, Kathryn offers fascinating information about how political candidates use language and other tactics to polarize us. The audio quality of the portion of the evening that includes Kathryn's demonstration of the seven strategies of polarization that contribute to strong divisions in American society is compromised, so for the second half of the broadcast, we would like to direct our listeners to Kathryn's website for videos of her lecturing about these strategies.

#TChat Radio is all new on Tuesday, March 5, 2013, at 7:30 pm ET (4:30 pm PT).
We've all seen what polarization can do to a community and country. Extreme polarization hobbles our ability to improve processes and social ills, to progress at a global business leader, to just plain get things done.
According to our guest this week, Jesse Lyn Stoner (@JesseLynStoner), collaboration is the remedy for polarization.
"Collaboration is not about giving up your individuality. In fact, successful collaboration depends on speaking clearly and honesty about what you stand for. Collaboration is about valuing and mobilizing diversity as a force toward the common good. It is about recognizing and respecting the humanity in each individual, even those who are stuck at a pole."
This is tough for leaders and individual contributors to do in the heat of polarization, but it's critical for the world of work to advance, as well as the world itself. This is the very heart of productive communities online and off.
This week on TalentCulture's #TChat Radio and Twitter #TChat, we’re going to discuss the benefits of community collaboration in every incarnation and entity we belong.
Join co-creators and hosts, Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman and their informative expert guest:
- Jesse Lyn Stoner (@jesselynstoner), a business consultant, coach, former executive, and bestselling author who has worked closely with leaders for over 25 years, helping them create collaborative, engaged workplaces that make a powerful and positive impact on the world.
This will be another great show, so we hope to see you here!
“Who would have thought that the simple act of doing a radio show could lead to the unearthing of a hidden formula for overcoming one of today’s most pressing societal problems; polarization?”
Nonetheless this is exactly what has occurred in the brief one year plus several months this show has been on-air with Blog Talk Radio.
In this episode Jack invites Anastasia to share the profound transformative dynamics operating behind the scenes in her life, as well as the lives of others, in the time period of this program that have led to her discovery.
Find out how day-to-day interpersonal encounters uncovered Anastasia's surprisingly simple, but not easy to do, “Lean In Legacy Template” the new centerfold of the Possible Society In Motion Radio Show.
What you say after you say “hello” can make all the difference as to the course your life path may take, win or lose, stressed Eric Berne, M.D.. Berne, the author of What Do You Say After You Say Hello?, also, authored the runaway best seller of the late 1960s, Games People Play, and was the architect of Transactional Analysis (TA).
By way of introducing her “Lean In” Legacy Template, show host, Anastasia Rosen-Jones, draws upon this central tenet of TA theory. To create this template, Anastasia, a retired psychotherapist, Certified Transactional Analyst and Gestalt therapist, builds on more than forty years of analyzing and treating dysfunctional relationship patterns.
Anastasia's skeletal framework, The “Lean In” Legacy Template, is designed to spotlight transformational opportunities for turning polarization into progress in human affairs. Anastasia offers her template as a guidebook, for those who would seek the “possible” in ourselves and with one another.
The “template" is, likely, to become the centerfold for this program's identity. In this episode, co-host, Jack Slattery, invites Anastasia to share the background stories behind the creation of this new tool, “The Lean In Legacy Template,” and the pathways she traveled on both her, professional and personal journeys, to design it.
A panel of experienced community bridge builder facilitators takes up the subject of what we, as citizens, can do to move beyond polarization in the U.S.A.
Hosted by New Horizons New Horizons Small “Zones of Peace” Executive Director and Founder, Anastasia Rosen-Jones. (See Anastasia The Storyteller.)
The panelists and subsequent discussion, including audience call-ins, builds its theme upon Ms. Rosen-Jones’s Overcoming Polarization address as presented on Wednesday, December 12, 2012 at Hood Coll
From 7:00 p.m.-- 8:30 p.m., following the on-air broadcast, Anastasia, tonight’s panelists and a call-in audience will continue the conversation at:712.432.0600, access code 640883. (Portion not recorded.)
Panelists are Jim French and Dana French.
Hosts Jesse and Cody discuss the increasing polarization in the world as it regards American politics and the border crisis, neither Congress nor the Executive Branch able to advance their agendas without an "all or nothing" approach. The Israel/Palestine conflict is a perfect example: both sides driven by existential forces and passions to defend and fight for their being and their ontology, the only solution coming in the form of strategic dinosaur placement or amusement parks. This leads to a discussion of American Culture's individualistic "all or nothing" strain, the wish to be accepted and embraced regardless of faults. Finally, women who are against feminism are examined to learn how identity, image and perception influence the polarization process.
In this episode Anastasia and Jack explore the other side of "leaning in" the disconnected self, its roots and its consequences in modern America. For this evening’s program a particularly relevant article, “Alienation Under Capitalism” by Erich Fromm is used as a discussion launching point.
Jack, reliably, adds his astute perspectives to analyzing the implications of this piece from Erich Fromm. And, then joins with Anastasia to merge the overarching theme of the show; leaning in as antidote to the poison of polarization, with the upcoming special program, Saturday, July 26, with guest, G.M. (Mike) Corrigan, investigative journalist and author.
V. Frank Asaro, JD is a lawyer, musician/ composer, inventor and theorist who authored the non-fiction book, Universal Co-opetition, published (Oct.2011), The Tortoise Shell Code, novel (2012) and now, A Primal Wisdom (April, 2014), the non-fiction corollary to his novel and a 2d, expanded edition to Universal Co-opetition. He began developing the theory of co-opetition not long after he was selected out of law school as lawyer-clerk to the California Courts of Appeal.
He went on to receive the highest-category law career peer review, Preeminent, Martindale Hubbell rating, and appeared in Who’s Who in American Law, and Who’s Who in the World. Engaged in litigation most of his career, he honed skills proving or disproving facts and stories – a handy talent for a novelist and a theorist. Moreover, as a patent holder, he shows a creative knack. This he calls upon in weaving the most exciting tale of The Tortoise Shell Code, a fiction work in Admiralty – one of his fields, and in nailing the theories of this non-fiction corollary, A Primal Wisdom. In those early days when he was an Appellate court law clerk, his creativity became a major component in developing the theory of the products liability holding of Greenman v Yuba Power Products - further expanded by the California Supreme court. A major part of the Greenman opinion is now the law in the English speaking and European Union countries of the world. To offer additional examples of co-opetition, or to contact in general: email@example.com.
Hosts Jesse and Cody discuss opioid painkiller addiction and perscription rates in America, the continuing fetish evinced by our media for casting any and all subject matter in terms of "Right vs. Left", and the recent Supreme Court Rulings concerning buffer zones for abortion clinics and the Hobby Lobby/Conctraception Coverage issue.
Letters from listeners to the Possible Society In Motion Radio Show prompt Anastasia and Jack to refine their show format and presentation. “Leaning in,” thus, is shown to be a way of being as well as a method for, genuinely, converting the poison of polarization into a viable pathway for unimagined possibilities.
In this episode, comments from a Philadelphia listener inspire Anastasia to become more self-revelatory. To accomplish this Anastasia digs deeply into her personal archives for stories from her life-long quest to convert the snags she saw around her, as a child, into successfully creating sustainable communities, the basis for New Horizons Small “Zones of Peace” Project.
Advises the listener (comment edited) -- “Jack, Anastasia asked her audience to talk about the extent to which they "lean in". To what extent does she lean in. That would be the question I would have posed to her.”
From that same listener – “I appreciate the feeling that goes into these discussions. At the same time, it still feels too abstract and theoretical. I would appreciate a more personal account of the struggle to achieve these things rather than a recitation of the concepts and an accounting of "what people should do". Even a recounting of personal failures while trying to achieve would be a positive for me.”
Join Anastasia and Jack for a lively on-air discussion, based on "lean-in" stories, followed by an extended community forum. Conference Dial-in Number: (712) 432-0600, access Code: 640883#.
