Our world is in need of real help and deep healing. The wounds in our communities from systems of oppression, violence, war, racism, exploitation, and inequities of power and wealth are clear in the collective and intergenerational trauma, despair, and isolation we see around us. Many of these problems are rooted in our disconnection from our own authenticity and from one another.
A relational approach to caring for one another is one step toward building more trauma-responsive communities that support human rights and respect the dignity of every individual. There’s no other form of helping so dependent on authenticity and so grounded in the present moment.
We’re all responsible to make a difference. Together with each encounter we can nurture deeper human connections and bring healing into our world.
