Listening From Essence, Dialogue or Death: James O'Dea

In this keynote from 2009 in Boise, Idaho, at the Living in The Fire of Change Conference, James O'Dea recounts in extraordinary detail the power of dialogue, listening, and the imperative of restorative justice, healing justice.

Originally titled "Roots and Stars", we wanted to illuminate the fullness of this hour as a prophetic message for us all during these times. Packed with humor, storytelling, citations of major mystics and philosophers alike, and anecdotes from our world's most blatantly heinous atrocities.. of which James himself almost died, we come to a place of "tea among strangers, amidst the rubble", or the humanity that resides in all of us even amidst suffering and loss.

This podcast is a very special feature, and an honoring, of our dear colleague and friend James O'Dea.
