Around the World
|Core Group||Continues to meet using the 2014 CC Manual|
|CLC Workshop Follow-Up||An introductory CC workshop was held for 30 members of the Taipei CLC recently. The group has since been divided into six groups which are now meeting using the 2014 CC Manual.|
|Robert Tan||Conducting a four-month course for the Hsinchu Diocese’s Educational College.|
|Atlanta||New events coming soon.
|Bay Area||Core group is in the midst of a series of five one-day workshops with Fr. Lynch with separate meetings using the 2014 CC Manual.|
The core group just completed the CC 14 week Introductory Course. There were 11 participants who met bi-weekly for 7 months. Teresa Wan reports that they found CC helped in many ways - raising self awareness, responsibility for our triggers, awareness of feelings and needs, deepening our ability to connect with self and others using empathy. Six of the more experienced members took turns facilitating the group meetings. The group plans to continue meeting monthly, beginning in September.
THE ART AND PRACTICE OF SELF-CONNECTION

Chris and Veronica Chan are currently running a 4-week CC Youth Group in July-August. While they have already introduced CC to Chinese parents in the past 2 years, this is their first attempt to bring CC to Chinese youths. They believe that this strategy can bridge the gap between parents and children who have very different, sometimes conflicting, cultural beliefs and values between the East and the West.
|Toronto||On a visit to Toronto, Clemens Suen has been speaking with Rebecca and Claude Hau, active members of the Toronto Marriage Encounter about the possiblity of bringing our programs there. Roque Ip and Marie Cheung have also found interest at Fountain of Love, an organization founded by Chinese lay Catholics which produces Christian film and radio programs.|
