If having Brené Brown, the guru of “courage, vulnerability, shame and empathy,” as the kick-off to SXSW 2019 was a harbinger of things to come, perhaps we’re on the way toward vanquishing the divisive demons that have dominated the political discourse in the U.S. today. Finally bringing our culture’s obsession with both mental and physical health and wellness closer to the forefront of understanding ourselves and others helps to bring some coherence to our description of the roots and remedies proposed to the polarizing political issues that divide us as a society.
