"How shall the heart be reconciled to its feast of losses?" This fierce question by Poet Stanley Kunitz is the genesis for this episode. Truth is we'll never be able to address the ecological and political predicaments we face, unless we get better at letting go without giving up. Not letting go in defeat or resignation, but rather in a firm desire to build new reservoirs of strength and resiliency. Characteristics that allow us to come back again and again to our most passionate causes and projects more centered, calm, and strong.
