I'm a curious person with the goal of finding out what's 'really going on'.  My research on Community Conversations studied group dialogue and the consideration of collaboration in the public sphere where local empowerment can work to tackle conflicts that allows a new unified way of coming together productively for the fair, purposeful benefit of all concerned.

It can be challenging and maybe daunting to be the right person for all situations and occasions. No doubt we cannot be everything to everyone however we can be lovingly present that allows for the other person to open up to their highest self. 




We're just getting started with this folks!  I am looking for guest experts & your story~
