Exploring Moral Education

Length: 92 min.
Place: United States

In September 2020, Parker J. Palmer and Rabbi Dr. Ariel Burger joined us for an engaging and inspiring webinar conversation. We explored the mechanics of moral change and discussed the ways in which we can transform our suffering into positive motion.

In this conversation we explore ways to cultivate moral education across multiple levels and perspectives, from personal to societal. As Palmer wrote in his book The Courage to Teach, "The human condition is vast and varied, and fear is only one of its faces. But whether the focus is fear or power or ego, or grace or humility or love, an effort to understand the inner lives of teachers and learners not only makes for compelling conversation but for better teaching and learning as well."
