Bali Institute for Global Renewal
200 Spencer Avenue

More than any other experience, the Bali Institute helped me widen my world lens to allow me to see multiple perspectives and viewpoints. No other gathering has encouraged me more to step beyond my own believes, connect with others, and take action at the edge of the unknown.

The Bali Institute is risk-taking with global support -- a place and time where you know you were meant to be, where the people who surround you feel like longtime friends, and with an authentic sense of common ground that supports a shared vision for a compassionate world and its best future possibility . . . where the people of Bali nurture your soul and rekindle your hope for the future.

Motivated by my Bali experiences, I have moved beyond my responsibilities as a high school principal to join a broader network of leadership coaches and school leaders (Asia Society's International Studies Schools Network) initiating an international focus in high schools across the United States. The Bali Institute helped me replace doubt with possibility, darkness with hope in action.
