Care Culture

An Interactive of Our Work & Selves

  Teachers as students, with a sincere desire to know and understand.  

Care is to offer without transaction, to invite and spend time with, to share and be shared with.

WE VALUE WHAT WE GIVE AWAY, and offer what we have an abundance of.

Free thoughts lead to found people, which is the most valuable resource of all.  

So here.  Have.  We made this for you.

CareLabs are an annual coming together, either in real life or virtually, that allow us to teach and learn from one another in real time. There is no charge to attend and we welcome outside participants.

Below are recordings of our gatherings.
