Engaging in Intentional Conversations
We engage in the relational practice of listening deeply to one another and sharing our stories to discover common experiences and threads weaving our histories together. We build trust as we talk with our neighbors, co-workers, friends, people different from us. We create bigger space for community conversation and action. Read more about intentional conversations.
ATTENDING TO THE PUBLIC DIMENSIONS IMPACTING OUR PERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS
Uncovering the Bigger Picture
We do not stay stuck in our personal stories. We become aware of the public systems, mindsets, institutions that have and are impacting our lives and act collectively to cultivate more equitable, diverse, thriving neighborhoods and cities.
SACRED PRESENCE TEAM

- isolated from community
- experiencing life's hardships, struggles and pressuree
- in the midst of life transition

We build trust and deepen relationships as we awaken to the interconnection of our passions, pressures and dreams.
