A celebration and gratitude about the training in Thailand from July: 4 days of Nonviolent Communication training (skills for staying grounded under trying conditions, gaining self clarity and self compassion, speaking with compassion, listening deeply, etc) for this year's Buddhist Education for Social transformation. 18 women activists working in fields as diverse as Gender Equality, Environmental Justice, Animal Rights, Health, Youth Empowerment, Education and Permaculture and more.
