Hope Story Circle with Anne Marie Shull - January 22, 2022

January 22, 2022

Anne Marie grew up in Southern California, in a life she describes as ordinary. Her first career was as a performer, singing and dancing in tours of Broadway musicals. She found an interest in how these shows were managed, how things moved from place to place, how much royalty the original designers and creators of the shows were paid when she performed from city to city. At one point, she began an apprenticeship in creative performing management, and then was referred to work as a tour manager for a couple of concerts of Burt Bacharach, the world-renowned, multiple Grammy and Academy award winning composer and performer. That grew into a decades-long position, and her role grew with the years to be multi-faceted with great responsibility. Providing the scaffolding for Burt Bacharach to be able to fulfill his artistic endeavors became Anne Marie’s role. The inquiry is to consider what past experiences provided the learning to move to the next step. We often don’t realize at any given point in time what might evolve in the next chapter of life, and how we are being provided opportunities that make those next chapters possible to realize.

Hope Story Circle with J Thompson - January 8, 2022

January 13, 2022

J Thompson begins 2022 as the Peace Alliance’s new Community Peacebuilding Council Lead, and we were delighted to have her start the year as our guest at the Hope Story Circle. She told a wonderful story about a trip that she took to Africa at age 16, with a group of other young people, and meeting with young people there. The story was about being in time, being present, and allowing spaciousness and peace to guide timeliness, also referring to time as being circular — "this too shall pass," yet it may come again. The invitation in conversation was about finding a time when people felt they were present in time, and how did that feel? How could that practice be intentional, and provide a sense of peace in the moment?

Hope Story Circle with Sandie Behrens - December 11, 2021

Hope Story Circle with Sandie Behrens - December 11, 2021

December 12, 2021
Sandie Behrens figured out the truth that she had been adopted at a very young age. After considering pursuing her real family several times over the years, she decided at the turn of the year she would turn 50, that this milestone warranted taking action - and she did. She found her mother, grandmother, two brothers and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins and more. The lessons she learned were about forgiveness, grief, and nature vs. nurture. While Sandie’s story is unique to her experience, we all can ask the question - who am I? What have I experienced in life that brings me joy, and what have I experienced that brings me grief?

Hope Story Circle with Victoria Moore - November 13, 2021

Hope Story Circle with Victoria Moore - November 13, 2021

November 14, 2021

Victoria Moore was raised by a single Mom who taught tap dance, and she took that mantle when her Mom was injured at just age 17, continuing with a career as a professional dancer touring with Broadway musicals, and then returning to teaching. A single performance inspired her to make tap dance available to people with disabilities, or elderly people to inspire them and improve their cognitive abilities. She took her Mom’s choreography and created a book that is being published, called Tap Dance for All - Adapting Instruction for Disability and Mobility Impairment. The inquiry focused on purpose, and access — was there something your heart felt drawn to do, and you were able to do it? Or you don’t know what it is, and you find access? Check the calendar of Events at www.peacealliance.org - join us at our next Hope Story Circle and share your emerging stories!

Hope Story Circle with Marita Fridjhon - October 23, 2021

Hope Story Circle with Marita Fridjhon - October 23, 2021

October 23, 2021
Marita’s story began in her childhood growing up in a rural farm in South Africa, during Apartheid. From the separation of people of color, and the image held in her memory of people of color encircling the cemetery when her father was being buried when she was twelve years old, her life of work has been to bring people together with deepening understanding. The story continued to the last couple of years, when Covid has led to isolation. Yet, Marita shared an expression of connection with people in small ways that have a larger and long-lasting impact. What can each of us do to impact those around us, even if it might seem in small ways of support, connection, and joy?
