How do we inform, inspire and even engage individuals in this digital era of rapid change? How do we share new perspectives on global issues and cut through the noise of information overload and the barrage of social media rhetoric? Nancy Roof has been on a mission to do this by sharing transformational thinking and policy initiatives, aesthetic beauty and collective wisdom since 2000. And more than that, she has been working with powerful world leaders and change-makers for decades to tell a new story of our human potential. Join us for this evocative and inspiring conversation.

Nancy won the 2009 Images and Voices of Hope award for excellence in journalism. Her testimony on the human dimension of the United Nations was distributed to the US President and Congress. As a founder of Transpersonal Psychology (late 70s), she served as a spiritual guide to individuals for 20 years. In the late 80s, she began to define the field of global transformation at the United Nations, where she successfully lobbied for elevated global standards in international treaties and co-founded the Values Caucus (1994) and the Spiritual Caucus (2000). Working with 78 international organizations in war zones for over two years, she recognized the traumatic effect of war, not only on military personnel, but on their families, communities and service providers. She then designed the first global training programs and workbook on secondary traumatic stress, implemented initially during the Balkan wars and now used internationally.
