Today we’re continuing our conversations with people who have a lot of wisdom to offer when it comes to leaving rooms and finding new ones.

My guest today is a writer, speaker and activist who focuses on issues in education, community, leadership, spirituality, and social change. He is the founder of the Center for Courage and Renewal and his name is Parker J. Palmer. He’s the author of 10 books including one of my favorites, Let Your Life Speak. He’s a member of the Religious Society of Friends, also known as the Quakers, and he lives together with his wife Sharon in Madison Wisconsin.

I invited Parker on because his work has had a profound impact on my own personal formation and has helped to shape my own understanding of the human soul. I’m grateful he said yes to sitting in the room with me today. Listen in.
