Deep Democracy in Social Activism

Myrna's work has been used in groundbreaking projects, co-creating with small and large groups, to meet complex political issues such as human rights, conflict and societal values.' - Martin Sande, Creative leader at co-Lab by Preera.

"The Israeli-Palestinian BDS debate was quite possibly one of the best meetings I have facilitated. In the words of the student politician who had convened the event: if it had gone any better we would have solved the Middle East problem!" - Dr. Aftab Erfan, Instructor, University of British Columbia
