GUEST:
Patricia Hirsch, MCC

SHOW DESCRIPTION:
Patricia Hirsch What I have assessed in my life, and an assessment is a story that we as humans make up about the facts, is that people are truly driven by their heart; that all people really want to do is contribute to each other. During this show, Patricia has chosen to have a conversation with her listeners, may they be so kind as to join in, about where they see their hearts leading them. That beyond all the shoulds and should nots and beyond all the have tos and need tos and effortful and meaningless trying to be someone other than who they are… are people simply available to love and to share their hearts with each other. Underneath all the rhetoric and the chest-puffing and orating are people who want to make a difference and find themselves caught up in thinking they have to prove themselves to the world, rather than just taking relaxing breathe and coming back to their cores of just wanting to make a difference in simple and loving ways.
