Follow Your Inspiration Series

Follow Your Inspiration Series 2014-2015

The Follow Your Inspiration Series is a continuing exploration of how our connection with the basic goodness of all human beings can inspire our work and help promote good human society. We invite leaders and luminaries from different disciplines to offer their wisdom and experience. In these workshops we will work together to discover the skills and resources we need to enter or expand our work in the area that inspires us. The series is currently on Haitus but if you’d like to
