"As we wake up to the understanding that our world is not fixed--and therefore the ways we think, act, and relate to one another matter--we realize that we have profound potential for transformation. This is the heart of spiritual practice as we see it. And that is the meaning behind our name, Courage of Care: as we deepen in our sense of connection we touch in on our natural capacity for care. And from that care--that sense of being truly inter-dependent--we awaken the Courage to show up, to love, to see, to heal, to envision, and to act." -- Brooke D. Lavelle, Ph.D.
