Stories of Rebels

Where's the Spirit?

The Inner Life of Rebellion

with Parker Palmer and Courtney Martin
On Being

What defines an act of rebellion? How might acts of rebellion also be acts of creation or transformation? This cross-generational conversation challenges us to ask these questions and to explore the dynamics of power, anger, and discomfort that come with rebellion and change. As Martin notes, ““Unless you create those spaces, you don’t have the place to grapple with your power. We talk about rebellion and we think about the powerless rebelling against the powerful…what are the spaces where you are able to tune in and question how you’re actually using that power?” How might you seek out or create spaces for reflect on your relationship with and orientation to rebellion?
