IDEOLOGY

Ideology imprints itself on our psyche in endless ways — from politics to business, religion, gender and culture. We use it to understand our world, avoid existential threats, and to maintain values and interpersonal relationships. Generally, we agree on the mainstays: democracy, freedom of speech, equal pay — but what happens when one group’s ideology starts dominating the rest of us? This week, we’re out to understand the source and meaning of our own ideologies and to open our minds to other cultures’ practices, beliefs and trends.

Ideology imprints itself on our psyche in endless ways -- from politics to business, religion, gender and culture. We use it to understand our world, avoid existential threats (we’ve all been there questioning the meaning of life at 2am on a Tuesday), and to maintain values and interpersonal relationships. Generally, we agree on the mainstays: democracy, freedom of speech, equal pay -- but what happens when one group’s ideology starts dominating the rest of us? This week, we’re out to understand the source and meaning of our own ideologies and to open our minds to other cultures’ practices, beliefs and trends. Join us as we channel our inner Lib Arts student and geek out on ideology.

RESPECT

This week, we’re respecting #respect — and the more we delve into this theme, the more we realize its power. Unlike attention, respect can be lost, earned and offered but it can never be bought. Our entire self-worth is derived from our own self-respect and sometimes that means creating boundaries and other times, mass empathy. Even in the hardest of times, if we search, cultivate and choose respect, our time on earth will be all the more significant. Join us this week and find out what R-E-S-P-E-C-T really means to you.

TRADITIONS

There’s something to be said for tradition, especially in a world that is transforming faster than an iOS upgrade. Traditions connect us back to our roots, bring us together and impart values and wisdom. Maybe you’ve got strong family traditions in the form of a recipe, a home remedy, or just in the way you fold your sheets. There is no right or wrong to traditions — however we admit, there are some that are worth questioning. This week, we’re looking at which traditions need an upgrade and which ones are worth passing onto the next generation. Because traditions built on love will always endure.

ANGST

Sometimes it feels less like we’re living in the Age of Aquarius and more like we’re living in the Age of Anxiety. From teens to elders, anxiety is an epidemic that people oftentimes don’t even know they’re facing. Add in the last 12 months of economic hardship, potential nuclear war and crazy political clickbait that permeates every newspaper or social feed and is it any wonder the country’s feeling just a little on edge? This week, we’re looking outside the Xanax bottle for our proverbial chill pill, focusing on food as medicine, breathing deep and connecting back to our intuition. Tune in with us and tune out from all the noise.
