We rehomed the goats this year. It’s very sad.

We visited The Common Unity Project in British Columbia and gave a conference called the Power With Conference. We facilitated using open space programming and offered workshops in Nonviolent Communication, theater of the oppressed, and family constellations. JJ also gave ear acupuncture, and many other folks from TCUP and the nearby town of Hazelton led workshops. We baked bread in their lovely cob oven, and had a wonderful time.
