Worldwork 2017 Athens



I worked as a member of the facilitation team at Worldwork. Deep Democracy in a World of Divides: Shifting Consciousness in Politics, Economics, Ecology and Relationships
April 23 – 28, 2017
Porto Heli, Argolida, Peloponese, Greece

Worldwork is an experiential training seminar in conflict work, facilitation and community building. It presents methods for facilitating groups at every level of interaction. The seminar provides an opportunity for 500 people from around the world to come together in a powerful forum for focusing on and working with social, environmental, and political issues.
By bringing awareness to the many parts and dimensions of experiences in any conflict, opportunities emerge to transform communities locally and globally. The orientation is at once personal, political, and spiritual.
Worldwork contributes exciting new perspectives in large and small scale conflict resolution work, diversity training and multi-cultural communication, vision and strategy building, organizational change facilitation, teambuilding, and leadership coaching.

A community conversation for Transgender Day of Remembrance


Saturday afternoon 19 November 1pm – 4pm 2016

Conference Room at Drummond St Services

Marie August and Anne Murphy hosted a conversation with trans and gender diverse  people and allies  on the eve of Transgender Remembrance Day. 

In hosting this space we were particularly interested in the emerging conversations in the community. The focus of the dialogue together was determined by the group. We heard stories of resilience, struggle and celebration.  

“The most fundamental forum is your own heart. Both as a facilitator and as a human being, you must learn to hear yourself there.”
