Cities of Compassion/ The Grace-Full Power of Compassionate Community Building

Sande's signature workshop leads everyone to their own understanding of the power of compassion, how to leverage it, and how it informs our decisions and can transform our world. 

Compassion is arguably the single most critical virtue our world needs right now. What's more, it's inherent in every human being.

Having spent the past 9 years working in the field of compassion, developing programs and projects, traveling the world conducting workshops, building and/or supporting Cities of Compassion, and participating in midwifing the compassion movement, Sande couples her expert experience and her passion for community building to bring a dynamic and impactful workshop. 

 

Youth Empowerment  

This workshop is ideal for Girls, Youth and Community Organizers and anyone wanting to maximize their community service goals.


Considered the most essential focus of today's world, impressing upon your next current generation their role in their community, how to identify their calling, how to see their neighbor as an ally and how absolutely amazing they are is essential in our world today.   Sande's book, Make A Difference 101, Community Service; A Practical Step-by-Step Guide for Kids launched a entire speaking and dynamic workshop program. Just given the simple tools, stories,  and universal systems of looking at themselves and the world around them through the lens of compassion, youth ages 9-99 walk out of these  workshops taller, inspired by their own creativity, and ready to go out and make the world a better place.​

SDG 18, The Unofficial Sustainable Development Goal

On September 25th 2015, countries adopted a set of goals to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all as part of a new sustainable development agenda. Each goal has specific targets to be achieved over the next 15 years. I have added an "Unofficial 18th Goal to remind us that the solution requires each of us to recognize the role we play in accomplishing all 17.  It is critical that businesses and corporations, community groups, stakeholders of any community, and every single one of us accept our responsibility and engage in being a part of the solution of these Goals.  In this workshop, we get creative and collaborative,  developing a strategy and campaign that your organization or company can adopt as asocial responsibility cause. 

The Role of Women in Peacemaking

Women play a significant and critical role in peacemaking and it's time we remember that. Women also have unique and distinct biological innate imperatives to heal or world, protect our children and preserve our traditions for future generations. This "Women's Movement" which Harvard University's Pluralism Project has explored as a 4th wave of feminism, is powerful beyond measure and graceful in its dynamic. However, it's also not just for women anymore. This movement is calling for a balance between men and women. 

We explore what prevents us from leaning into our power and  how to express and amplify our truth and our voice.

As founder of the Women's Interfaith organization SARAH, Sande also consults and leads workshops on building circle  organizations.
