Turning Towards Each Other is a workbook on conflict for people working to change the world together that I co-authored with Jovida Ross. The booklet gathers and adapts tools we have used to help us navigate conflict while moving towards transformative change in groups. We wrote Turning Towards Each Other because we needed these tools ourselves and because we believe deeply in people’s transformative capacity to access our wholeness and create new worlds based in love.
