Title: Detroit

“I recently participated in a learning journey that took place in Detroit, led by visionary author and teacher Margaret Wheatley and local activist Richard Feldman in partnership with the Boggs Center. The learning journey was an inquiry into and an invitation to bear witness how people of Detroit are re-building community and livelihoods in a post-industrial world.

Detroit restored my hope beyond hope, my faith beyond faith.

This is the story of Detroit from my eyes, my ears, my heart. We need to know about Detroit, not only to bear witness the amazing people who are Re-Imagining everything there but to find the power, the courage and the beauty in our own hearts so when the shi(f)t hits the fan – like it did in Detroit – we’ll know where to take refuge and how to move forward.”
