Read more at In this session, Shannon will encourage us to embrace the spirit of Janus, the Greek god with two heads, looking forward and backward, whose name inspired January. Shannon will briefly introduce how to tell a good story, talk about the power of storytelling and how it can shape our realities and choice-making, and ultimately lead us through an exercise on "manifesting stories." Based on all we've discussed, we will pick one goal for the year and practice telling that story as if it were already true as a method for manifesting it into being.

What we're about


Compassionate Atlanta is a grassroots movement that seeks to raise awareness about the benefits of compassionate action in the Greater Atlanta area. The Compassionate Atlanta Planning Team, which was formed in 2013, was instrumental in getting the City of Atlanta designated as a “Compassionate City (”

That important step was taken on February 3rd, 2014 by the City Council of Atlanta and approved by Mayor Kasim Reed on February 12th, 2014. In so doing, Atlanta became the second largest metropolitan area in the United States to become a Compassionate City.
