This is part 4 of the series 'Appropriate Response at the Tipping Point' that began 6/14. In this talk, James discusses the last two of the five transformational commitments in Bob Doppelt's book From Me to We:
4. Acknowledge your trustee obligations and take responsibility for the continuation of all life
5. Choose your own destiny
In this talk I will explore Wise Speech and how it relates to freedom as taught in the 8 Fold Path and the 5 Precepts. We will also take an open and compassionate look at our own behaviors around Wise Speech through the lenses of identity and cultural context.
