Saving our planet and averting a climate disaster seem increasingly challenging, even impossible. But this week’s guest believes that hope and heart are the answer. In his book collaboration with His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama, Patrick McDonnell proposes a compassionate revolution and encourages us to see that real change in the world will only come from a change of heart. Join us this week as we discuss the book, Heart to Heart: A Conversation on Love and Hope for Our Precious Planet.
