Thank you, Beijing Qi Jia Sheng Ye, Satir (China) Learning and Development Center
We are deeply appreciative of the Qi Jia Sheng Ye Center in Mainland China for their amazing support of the 100,000 Heart Connections Campaign. Featured in the photo are the director, Miranda Wei Min (With Scarf) and their campaign liaison, Juliet Shi. They created the beautiful poster that you see as a way of promoting the campaign and are distributing it to Satir agencies throughout China. They will also be collecting videos of appreciation and donations to send for the Campaign.
We want to celebrate the incredible work of the Center, which has 18 full-time employees and four part-time employees devoted to spreading the Satir spirit and applying it in four different fields: Person Growth, Relationships, Organizations and Professional Development. And just recently they published their first application book entitled, Bloom.
We also want to express a major appreciation to Dr. John Banmen for all the work supporting and fostering the articulation and education of the transformational ideas of Virginia Satir in China and the around the world.
