Radio interview on The Courage to Be in Community

 


 

Eric Tonningsen interviewed Tony for his radio program, Awakening to Awareness: Realigning with What Really Matters.

Eric wrote:

Tony’s recently published book, The Courage to Be in Community served as the underlying focus for our conversation. He shared his distinctions between courage and bravery, and authenticity versus genuineness.

We talked about the significance in communities of five Cs:

  • Courage,
  • Connection,
  • Choice,
  • Compassion and
  • Conversation.

We also explored relationship, acting from the heart, mothering touch, vulnerability and costumes, again in the context of community.
