One Person

John wrote this blog post as part of his learning exercises in the "Business Building" training program conducted by Divine Play in Charlottesville, VA.

This week I embarked on a new project and I'd like to share it with all of you.

My original title for this blog post was, "Insight: What's possible when 'one person' is able to 'see' the human experience in an entirely new light?" I reduced the title to "One Person," to help me remember the core idea that surfaces again and again for me in various "forms" when I engage the world with little on my mind. All I will need going forward is those two words to remember that all it takes is a single individual to change the hearts of many.

The Janet Reno Legacy You've Never Heard

Thank you, Janet Reno

In 1987 Janet Reno approached Dr. Roger Mills, inquiring whether he thought he could help solve some of the systemic problems at the Modello Federal Housing Project that had for years plagued her at her Florida State Attorney office.

Roger Mills accepted the challenge. Ms. Reno's willingness to "think outside of the typical bureaucratic box," her trust to authorize a radically new and "unproven" intervention, and her commitment of the financial resources necessary proved to be the elements necessary to make this experiment possible.

Report on CSC Veterans' Project

Beverly Kobie"I believe that every veteran should be exposed to the Three Principles during discharge from the service, not just those with PTSD, because the message I received from the training was 'Coming Home to Peace' inside of myself."

- Beverly Kobie, US Army

Center for Sustainable Change was able to offer a small pilot version of its THRIVING vs Surviving veterans program in Charlotte, NC, in April, 2016. Beverly was the only female vet in the group of five. She came to the three-day event with a lot of skepticism, after years of traditional and non-traditional treatment for PTSD. In the quiet, caring environment of our talks about the Principles, she heard her own wisdom. Today, she is a supporter, ready to advocate for anything Center for Sustainable Change can do for veterans.
