Creating Durable Relationships

 Our world needs citizens who together can see problems, imagine solutions, and responsively create compassionate and accountable change. Whether we meet through a keynote lecture or through a four year contract with your organization, my intention is to provide an experience, a piece of research, or an interaction that transforms your thinking and perspective and provides insight and hope that change is possible. Changing is learning and learning is changing and the transformation never stops.

Creating durable relationships is essential in realizing this important change.  I am fortunate to have forged  many that sustain me over the years , and I look forward to working with you in your chosen context– be it self, family, community, education, or work.


If the world is to be brought to order, my nation must first be changed.

If my nation is to be changed, my hometown must be made over.

If my hometown is to be reordered, my family must first be set right.

If my family is to be regenerated, I myself must first be.”
