Coming Together Through Story

We all have a story to share. Our stories – our experiences in life, what we’ve gone through, what we’ve learned, where we’ve been, who we’ve met – are a large part of who we are. But how often do we get to share them freely in an empowering way? How often do we feel heard, respected, and understood?

At COALESCE we want to empower you to share your story. Stories are at the center of our human experience which bring us together. Authentic and honest sharing and deep listening can help us connect with one another, cultivate greater empathy, understanding, and compassion.

“Understanding and Love are not two separate things, but just one. To develop understanding, you have to practice looking at all living beings with the eyes of compassion. When you understand, you cannot help but love. And when you love, you naturally act in a way that can relieve the suffering of people.”
