“Youthful vigor, with the wisdom of an elder. Inspiring levity, with the diligence of a leader. Open, considerate mind, with the heart of a lion. To share time with Stina Brown is to see into the very potential of human capacity–for compassion, for patience, for growth. To work with her is to engage a dervish of infectious excellence. And that I have the good fortune to call her a friend is a sincere and treasured privilege. In whatever capacity you have opportunity to work with Stina, count yourself very lucky. And hang on: You’re about to go for a remarkable ride!” Mike Rowlands, Octopus Strategy http://octopusstrategies.com/default.htm

“Stina amazed me with her ability to effortlessly facilitate a group of 55 people over 4 days and evenings. She is incredible at maintaining her energy level which inspires others to their own high levels of personal achievement and involvement in a group setting. Stina’s authentically playful and funny personality gave me permission to take more risks and have more fun during the SCI retreat. Her ability to strongly lead a large group during day and then spontaneously have fun like a participate in the evenings was inspiring.” Cory LePage, Cory LePage Coaching http://www.corylepage.com

A Home for Everyone

I was asked to come to an evening discussion held at the West Vancouver United Church to visually capture some of the conversation. The topic was homelessness and the group gathered was made up of community members, congregation members, and the special speakers: Ralph Sultan, MLA West Vancouver and Capilano, David Foster, a North Shore Homelessness Advocate, AJ Ives: a local teenager, and outreach volunteer, Paul Butler: Coordinator of Youth, Hollyburn Family Services. The evening was lively and engaging. Drawings from the evening are below:


Dialogue on Inclusive Communities

This was an amazing evening event. Held in Abbotsford, over 100 people came together to talk about the meaning of inclusion – and how they wanted to create it in their home community. There was a beautiful energy in the room with capable and eloquent facilitators helping the appreciative dialogue move along smoothly. I would love to see this kind of dialogue take place in every community. Contact me directly if you’d like my help. ~ Stina
