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.

“The Satir International Journal”

Let’s celebrate Volume #3 , “The Satir International Journal.”

journals.uvic.ca/index.php/satir

The journal is free of charge. Virginia would have loved this. She wanted her teachings to be available to everyone. Her dream was to reach the everyday citizen. To be more specific, though, her teachings speak more to a population open to trying on a new way of looking at things. The Satir International Journal holds the possibility of providing educational and training resources as well as personal resources for a wide range of subscribers. Virginia Satir wanted to broadly influence the world. This journal is accessible. The one thing that could limit the journal’s accessibility is if people, like you, do not know about this free resource. That’s where our members and guests come in…..

China Celebrates Virginia Satir’s 100th Birthday

Reported by John Banmen

China Celebrates Virginia Satir’s 100th Birthday
The China Satir family members established a special committee to celebrate Virginia Satir’s 100th Birthday during 2016.  The plan is to give 100 public talks in different cities on the application of the Satir Model.  Topics such as improve parenting, improve couple relationships, helping teenagers and personal growth have been chosen as the main focus of the public talks.
For the last three years, China has had a training-for-trainers program with 35 participants.  These 35 will be the main presenters of the talks.  During a trial run of a few public talks in 2015, attendance reached 300.
Our committee members said in December 2015, “we will not stop at 100, the enthusiasm is too high.”  At the beginning or at the end of each talk a short ceremony in honor of Virginia Satir will be held.
