Superheroes: Ken Pettigrew & Terrance Peyton

I participated in a session at the Biomedical HIV Prevention Summit in Houston, Texas facilitated by Ken and Terrance. I’ve never experienced a workshop like this at a conference. Ken and Terrance created an experience with the entire room – focusing on community and connection with their extraordinary facilitation skills.  They lead a powerful panel and interactive discussion focused on our decision making processes around sexual health, behavior shifts that occur when we have empowering options, and advancing opportunities for freedom.

Their powerful facilitation skills created an intimacy and connection allowing for deep learning. We were left with a charge: How do we take these experiences back to our work places and interactions to restore humanity.

I was so grateful to be in attendance and left inspired.

Thank you to Ken and Terrance for your work, your presence, your vision, your spirit and your generosity in sharing all of this with us.

About the Love Superhero Hall of Gratitude

“The plain fact is that the world does not need more successful people, but it does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of every kind. It needs people who live well in their places. It needs people of moral courage willing to join the fight to make the world habitable and humane.” David Orr

I deeply admire those who “live well in their places.” The ordinary and the unsung who offer to the world the very best parts of themselves without expectation.

This is a beautiful expression of love in her calm, persistent, generous manner – offering a ripple of change (a metamorphosis) to the world.

Inductees to the Love Superhero Hall of Gratitude are caped in recognition of their contributions to a love-filled world.
