I am deeply committed to this: keeping my mind and heart open to all perspectives; expressing myself with an intention to be understood, not to convert or persuade
To me it means listening deeply to the underlying values and needs beneath any position; to seek ways to respectfully embrace the needs & views of all; to create new approaches to move forward on the many critical challenges of our times
It's hard to label; but I tend to agree with many 'progressive' stances
My professional web is www.partnowcom.com I have a presence on Facebook. And I am the founder/executive director of www.globalcitizenjourney.org A Sr. Facilitator for www.compassionatelistening.org Co founder of www.conversationcafe.org
I am excited and inspired by our Transpartisan Alliance work: it feels like the work of true citizenship and deep democracy.
A great pioneering adventure!
