Thrive Global

Cover picture for the articleWe were on tour when the pandemic began to shut everything down. In an effort to keep the work and the message out in the world, we launched Drumversations, a weekly YouTube show featuring solo drum set music and a discussion of topics from my forthcoming book, Toward a Politics of Humanity through the lenses of personal development, community development, and spiritual development. I’ve heard from people all over the country that this series helped them get through rough patches during the pandemic, others are using several of the episodes to facilitate community conversations, and the episodes on state sanctioned murder, analyzing whiteness, and understanding how to activate trust toward transformation has been used as training videos for nonprofits focused on human services.
