about carol experience publications presentations programs

If the time comes when our culture tires of endless homicidal feuds, despairs of the use of force and war as a means of bringing peace, becomes discontent with the half lives that it’s members are living only then will our culture seriously look for alternatives . . . When that time comes they will not find a void. . . . They will find that there are ways of being that do not involve power over persons and groups. They will discover that harmonious community can be built on the basis of mutual respect and enhanced personal growth.

— Carl Rogers, A Way of Being
