Bring a sense of humor and an open mind! From the Facilitator, Marisha Rodriguez: A conversation is a transformative gift. As a youngster, some of my fondest memories were going out to dinner and talking with my mother. It wasn’t just the delicious Bay Area food we enjoyed, but the quality of conversation we shared. Oftentimes we need only find the right company to ask our questions, reflect with others so that we can find our own meaningful answers.
