When we first used “Human to Human” in a workshop at the women’s correctional facility where AVP workshops have been offered for a decade, it was at the suggestion of an inside facilitator. She led the exercise and I, an outside facilitator, participated. My partner was someone with whom I had not yet connected during the workshop and I was a little skeptical, since I knew the content of the exercise. By the end of the narration, it was clear that my partner and I had crossed a threshold and created a very strong bond. Although we still didn’t have the particulars of each other’s lives, she and I together had completed a journey of compassion that would rest gently in our hearts and minds for long time.
