Introducing myself and my journal: Carrie Stiles

Posted July 15, 2011 from United States

About Me: I am excited to have the opportunity to connect with the incredible women that make up World Pulse. The incredible stories that make up this stellar network are inspiring. The common thread of empowerment, sown with unfathomable courage, holds together the diverse pieces in World Pulse's network. In the article I am submitting to the call for stories about Standing Up I ask the question: how can we empower, and be empowered, to harmonize our voices and Stand Up for social change? Each time I open my copy of World Pulse I am given new insights into this salient question. Thank you World Pulse for giving us the opportunity to share in the global dialogue !

My Passions: My passions are peace studies, conflict transformation, yoga and meditation and local sustainable agriculture

My Challenges: My challenge in life is to create a functioning, societal role for myself where I can actively create space for constructive dialogue.

My Vision for the Future: My vision for the future is one where meaningful, dialogic relationship building allows for reciprocal knowledge sharing.

My Areas of Expertise: My areas of expertise include conflict resolution (M.A.), research and documentation (participatory methodologies), negotiation and mediation (certified), organic cooking, writing and photography.
