The Common Good podcast is a conversation about the significance of place, eliminating economic isolation and the structure of belonging. This episode is the Abundant Community Conversation between Casper ter Kuile and Peter Block, which happened on June 22nd. Every couple of months the Common Good Collective helps to produce these interactive conversations on Zoom and they always contain poetry, small groups and an exploration of a particular theme with a community practitioner. In this Abundant Community Conversation, Casper and Peter speak about crossroads, possibilities, ritual and gifts.
