The Grace of Nelson Mandela: An Example for Couples

Uploaded: Dec 13, 2013
The more I read about Mandela, the more I am impressed by his grace and humility. He initiated healing ? and connecting ? conversations with many people and organizations that caused great harm to a nation, a people, and to him, personally.

He sets a great example for how couples can treat each other: To reach across a chasm with words and an offered hand.

We can be the instigator of healing and connecting ? locally and in our immediate family. We can learn from Mandela to be the best friend, mother/father, husband/wife, sister/brother, co-worker/volunteer as we are able ? to reach for more within ourselves. This is not about being perfect. This is full-heartedness.

Read about Nelson Mandela, and experiment with embodying healing in your own relationship. Be the one to say, "That didn't go very well. Let's try again."
We need your support now more than ever. Can we count on you?
