When you combine courage with compassion, the world can change.
Are you tired of the animosity and vitriol that fill our society at every mention of politics or religion, dividing us into two hostile camps on every possible issue?
So are we. We’re looking for others who want to change the dialogue from the rhetoric of polarizing animosity that is destroying the social fabric of our nation to a language of healing where honest differences don’t have to destroy friendships. Then we can seek a broader common ground based on mutual respect and compassion.
The Language of Healing will help you learn how to . . .
- See disagreement as an opportunity for growth and discovery.
- Change the temper of a hostile engagement or walk away.
- Share mutual respect even beyond our deepest differences.
- Become a peacemaker in your network of friends and family.
