"Jessie Sutherland is a visionary. Her work on reconciliation
draws upon decades of international work for peace and justice, and compliments
it with her synthesis of the most cutting edge-scholarly research in the
fields of dispute resolution and intercultural dialogue. Like the great
Zen Master, Thich Nhat Hanh, she is able to present profound and transformative
insights, in simple, digestible format. As a result, those who attend
her lectures and workshops leave feeling empowered, and equipped with
practical tools that they can use to become instruments of transformation
in their own communities."
