Carolyn, you share an exquisite expertise in integrating intelligence, spirit, and action to transform an experience into life transcendence.  We are in gratitude for your leadership in planning  our large academic kick-off event  “The Gift of Time” with intention,  grace, and respect of all the team.  Your authenticity invites inclusivity and risk-taking. Your attention to all details created a seamless mind-body-soul filled experience of timelessness for us as a community. What a validation of your gift to  foster learning:  brain –emotion – behavior into life and community transformation.  You  distilled  complexity into our essence of communitude™.

I am - We are In gratitude, Connie

The day of our annual kick-off event is always memorable, as we enjoy each other’s company and set the tone for the start of the semester! This year’s perspective on the gift of time enabled reflection on how we spend our time and how we each value our time. During the discussions led by Carolyn, our group reflected on the lifespan of our organization, with some in the early stages of planning their career to those planning the transition to retirement. The gift of time took on different meanings to all of us as we thought about the unique talents that we all bring to the table. The sharing of perspective led to an appreciation for each person’s contributions and commitment to our mission and an opportunity to dialogue on working together as a team. Carolyn’s holistic approach to the kick-off provided an excellent opportunity for us to re-energize and reconnect before the chaotic semester commenced!
