“When you show deep empathy towards others, their defensive energy goes down, and positive energy replaces it. That’s when you get more creative in solving problems.” ~ Stephen Covey
Our aim is for people to be able to have important conversations be constructive and respectful (based on empathy) instead of divisive and destructive (based on being right/wrong). Our hope is that this leads to more relationships, a stronger community and a thriving local economy. We are creating unity in the community, dissolving the differences which keep us divided and powerless, and helping to ensure that all community members’ basic needs (at least) are met.
