Eddie Gonzalez invites listeners to go outdoors and reflect on hope.

Eddie Gonzalez has a keen interest in the dance between inner and outer life, the stories we tell ourselves and the stories we tell each other. He is the Associate Director of Civil Conversations and Social Healing at On Being, and  previously worked for a decade around stories and spiritual care, including at StoryCorps, where he worked across the United States and Canada to help individuals and organizations create space for reflective conversations through community-based storytelling and audio recording projects. Before StoryCorps he was a hospice chaplain and received his clinical pastoral education while earning an M.F.A. in creative writing.

Eddie believes deeply in the power of collaboration and in connecting the growing ecosystem of projects, leaders, and listeners as well as developing meaning-making products for the On Being community. He feels most alive when he’s gathering around the table with friends and family, reading and writing, or exploring the outside world on foot. He lives in New York City with his partner, John Henry Greenwood.

Eddie will join us for a Zoom session this Wednesday, April 28th at 1 pm ET. During our time together, you can meet Eddie and ask him about anything you hear on this episode. Sign up for free.
