Our undiscovered self cripples us.” When we think about race, when we talk about it, and when we uncover different ways to look at it, we help uncover biases and beliefs that people have. I taught a bias workshop last year that helped white people look at their unconscious bias ar ..read more

When I worked full time at my last organization, I didn’t feel motivated. My boss was always ordering me around. He never asked questions. So I told stories about my terrible boss. I told stories about how overworked I was. And ultimately, i told stories about how I didn’t even care about my job anymore.

He also would never approve people’s budgets, he stole, twice from the organization and got us investigated by the Department of Justice. He simply had no idea how to run a nonprofit. He had sat on ..read more

When you don’t know yourself- When you don’t know others… You’re hostage to the … UNSPEAKABLE! Like Michael Jackson says, “You’ve been hit by-You’ve been struck by! The UNSPEAKABLE!” Chris Hedges writes, “When we cannot tell ourselves the truth about our past, we become trapped in it. This is especially true about race in America. Our undiscovered self cripples us.” This last weekend I took part in a dance and psychology workshop called Shadowtender. This project helps people explore their shadow, the parts of themselves they do not want to see. When you throw something away from yourself, say ..read more

Are you looking forward to valentine’s day?  This time of year always makes me think about the love in our sector. Going out on a limb here. a lot of people are all about donor love. Not me! Nope!
