I've been a Facilitator since 2010. I have delivered 2 events with a total of 22 attendees.
As a person involved in environmental organizations since 1971, I can only say that this is a life-time mission. My passion is to put all my energies into engaging others to see the great potential each of us possesses to make our Earth the garden it was always intented to be: a garden where each of us supports the others' quest to love our neighbor and uphold our neighbors' right to be justly respected to fulfill his/her potential.
Why I'm a Pachamama Alliance Facilitator
Being a facilitator is to be a mentor, a person who helps open the door for others to enable them to be mentors, also.
Events I've hosted as a facilitator:
- I hosted a Symposium in Tampa on June 25, 2016
- I hosted a Symposium in Tampa on September 12, 2015
If I could change the world
To put an end to war and hate.
This is who inspires me
Pope Francis, the Dalai Lama, and Martin Luther King, Jr.
Experiences I'm proud of
Having been one of the young activists in 1972 who organized the first global Alternative Conference on the Human Environment (parallel to the first UN Conference on the Environment) in Stockholm, Sweden. Also, I was one of the young activists, who in 1975 in Minnesota (USA), began the global Nestle Boycott. Both occasions were significant to me, personally,because I saw PROOF that a small group of engaged persons CAN begin to create change!
What I'm passionate about
I am passionate about the power of deep listening and loving dialogue to resolve misunderstandings between persons who have, previously, become polarized.
