At Envision Christine will be leading a practical workshop about the deep inner work of Transforming Enemy Images (of ourselves and others) to build a more compassionate world. Whether its the way we relate to our partner, business or families, learning tools to engage in dialogue and understanding across the differences that breed violence, is at the core of creating the compassionate world that we dream of being a part of.
