Recent Exchanges

GLEN Community Call: What is Our Complicity With Racism?
June 28, 2020
Four crises are facing our world right now: COVID–19, climate change, economic free fall and racial injustice. The first three are rapidly exacerbating and laying bare the last: racial injustice. This Exchange was a call for members to collectively and thoughtfully consider how recent events related to racial injustice are affecting us and what each of us wants to do about it. Ronita Johnson, Gisela Wendling, and Mary Gelinas hosted the Exchange.

World Crises Response: Creating the Future We Want
July 16, 30 and Aug 13, 2020

We held two GLEN community conversations in March to check in on how each of us was doing in the midst of our dramatically changing world. This Exchange series was intended to continue our connection and deepen our conversations with one another. Together leaned into what new understanding were arising and what wisdom wanted to be expressed through our collective dialogue - not only for ourselves but also to support our ability to help others.Our exploration combined guided reflection practices with personal sharing and group dialogues.
