“Between stimulus and response there is a space.
In that space is our power to choose our response.
In our response lies our growth and our freedom.”
–Viktor Frankl

This week: 

Teach Your Children Well- A Revisit of The Four Agreements:
A conscious capitalism breakfast meeting this week reminded us of this short but powerful book that might make an excellent book club read with your family this Summer.

The ideas in this book represent insights possessed by the Toltecs in what is now Mexico a thousand years ago, yet most of these ideas are highly similar to concepts used by modern humanistic psychologists, transactional analysts, and cognitive behavioral psychologists.

  1. Be impeccable with your word
  2. Don’t take anything personally
  3. Don’t make assumptions
  4. Always do your best

End Pre-Trial Torture in 25 Countries Around the World:
Help us inspire and train the next generation of International Bridges to Justice (IBJ) public defenders (JusticeMakers), who are effectively ending pre-trial torture in 25 countries around the world. This is about supporting real social action in action. Help us Help IBJ and become a part of the effort. Take a look at our campaign https://igg.me/at/z5v952Ryhyc
IBJ isn’t trying to end pre-trial torture, they are currently doing so, and they can use all our help…
