Joanie & Yehudah have taught the Basics of Compassionate Listening in Java, Malaysia, Rwanda, Uganda, Israel, Palestine, Oregon, Washington and NYC, plus numerous shorter workshops, including for the Air Force National Guard Diversity Council, Mercy Corps Teen Camp, Trinity Episcopal Cathedral and Trillium Co-Housing Community.
