Global Plus Local = “Glocal” Global Force for Healing exists to contribute wherever we are to expanding love and compassion in daily life. The distinction between “global” and “local” seems arbitrary in our interconnected world. Therefore, we are a “glocal” organization, applying what we learn to various contexts, in partnership with groups with aligned values and purpose.
Love in Action Locally Because we are committed to love and compassion in action wherever we are, we collaborate with these groups in southern Oregon, our home:
- Southern Oregon Birth Connections (www.SouthernOregonBirthConnections.com)
- Ashland Culture of Peace Commission (www.ashlandcpc.org)
Compassionate Communities—We are also working toward Ashland declaring itself a “compassionate community” and formally joining the Charter for Compassion International movement (http://www.charterforcompassion.org/index.php/communities).
