Wow. I loved this conversation.
Today’s guest is Cirese LaBerge, who served 20+ years in the California prison system before being released on parole on March 3, 2015.
During today’s episode, Cirese and I talk about the power of our choices: how we always have a choice, even if we may not prefer or like the consequences.
I am so inspired by the question Cirese regularly asks herself because she feels it is her duty to live in her loving:
Would I rather be loving or would I rather be right?
What if we each started asking that same question to ourselves? What might be different? What outcomes might you experience? How might you experience yourself differently?
Thank you, Cirese, for living in your loving and for showing me how beautiful that life is.
Cirese LaBerge Bio
After serving over 20 years in prison starting at age 18, Cirese LaBerge has become an example of how to live in healing. She works in conjunction with the Anti-Recidivism Coalition, #Cut50 and the Freedom to Choose Project, among others, bringing a connection of humanity to people across the state of California, going into the prisons she lived in to help inspire and provide hope for people currently serving a life sentence, speaking to students, from junior high to college, about the power of choices, and inspiring many to work alongside her in helping to change a broken system of “justice.”
