Bonnitta Roy is back on our show for the second time. She is so tuned into what's going on in the world, and we always have so much to talk about with her.

She is an award-winning author, philosopher, insight guide and international trainer, who’s focusing on building greater capacities for human sensemaking.

Today Bonnitta shares with us some details about her new written piece about human flourishing.

We also talk about the current social shift from global to local, what type of institutions we need right now, and how to engage in conversation about culture, race and what it means to really listen.
