listen with your whole heart // Truth Tribe interview: Jen Lemen
What does revolution look like?
When the second devastating earthquake hit Nepal earlier this year, Jen Lemen's boots were already on the ground. The earth literally shook beneath her feet, but that didn't stop her from being revolution in action.
Co-founder of Hopeful World, Jen offers global perspective through personal, intimate connection. Whether she's rolling up her sleeves and providing practical aid (such as blankets, rice, and water) or dropping everything to listen intently to heartfelt stories, Jen is an agent of healing at home and abroad.
Although I've long followed Jen's inspiring movement, her live Facebook updates during Nepal's tragedies captured my attention like nothing else. When preparing for our Revolution issue, my dream choice was Jen Lemen. I'm thrilled and honored that she said yes.
Jen's unique blend of deep philosophy with practical, tangible action offers potent guidance for phoenix souls who want to walk their talk.
I asked Jen, How can TPS readers begin to practice outreach in their everyday lives?
One theme that emerged in our Revolution issue, both in Jen's interview and throughout various offerings, was the importance of listening with heartfelt intention. With no agenda other than to stand witness, honor, and expand our understanding. To connect.
