I’m a Grandma. For me, that means being committed to a future where people relate to one another with compassion. Would I want my granddaughter to live in any other kind of world?
I spend most of my time in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where I host a weekly NVC practice group. I also make silver jewelry and dance tango.
I was an active member of the Consciousness Transformation Community (CTC), where I facilitated a weekly NVC practice group via teleconference. I also served as schedule coordinator for the Occupy Support Call, where volunteers offer empathy, do role plays, teach NVC and offer other support to callers. I facilitate that call twice a week. And I was co-founder and host of the online group that practices Restorative Circles – a model of restorative justice developed by Dominic Barter.
My four turtles teach me patience and pure presence on a daily basis.
