For a very long time now, I have been concerned about the state of our planet, who we seem to have become as humans and how we live and work together. Since my early adult life, I have apprenticed in mobilizing my resources to learn and share practical and theoretical knowledge that would address the root causes of social and environmental injustice and help build a nonviolent, collaborative world. One particularly important concern in my life has been to face my privilege, and steward it in various shapes and forms, to support people working alongside poor and/or marginalized communities.
I have had extended exposure to Convergent Facilitation as I have worked closely with Miki since 2011. What I particularly value about it is the orientation towards integration that it gives me, a sharpened ability to listen to noncontroversial statements in many walks of life, and a practical tool to help groups I work with converge towards decision making.
