Political Polarization and the Righteous Mind at The Jung Center @ The Jung Center | Houston | Texas | United States
Why does one person favor the Democrats, while another favors Republicans or Libertarians? The field of moral psychology suggests that the reasons for our allegiance to one or another perspective have much less to do with conscious, logical reasoning than with unconscious moral intuition, and that once we align with a moral tribe, we lose the capacity to see alternative moral narratives. How can we ever govern successfully together? If you are tired of political polarization, join us for this exploration of The Righteous Mind: Why Good People are Divided by Politics and Division by Jonathan Haidt.  This is a recurring series that takes place every Monday evening from April 3-24 from 5:45 – 7:15 pm.

This discussion will be guided by Cindy Wigglesworth.  Cindy is the best-selling author of SQ21: The Twenty-One Skills of Spiritual Intelligence, the creator of the SQ21 Spiritual Intelligence Assessment Tool, and the founder and CEO of Deep Change, Inc.—a successful coaching and consulting business. In addition to her many radio appearances, she has been a guest on the Oprah Winfrey Show and PBS television.

Cost for the series is $125 for members of the Jung Center, $135 for non-members.  To reserve your space for and for more information, go to the series information page.
