Rhonda Magee, MA (Sociology), JD, speaks about the inherent interconnectedness of human society and how that interconnected stretches across every dimension of our experience. As mindfulness practitioners, it is our role to recognize this interconnectedness and avoid the conventional barriers that keep us from engaging in the social needs that on a surface level may seem unrelated to us. Mindfulness practice, Rhonda says, allows us to truly be engaged in our communities.
