Join me on this journey with Cara Schwartz as we explore listening to ourselves and others with curiosity, compassion, and kindness. We have an open conversation about resistance, ways of practicing self-awareness and kindness — and how it impacts our relationships with others. Take note of the questions and practices that Cara shares and guides me through — How could you get curious with yourself?
Cara is a queer, self-employed designer, transformative facilitator, and activist of love. Partnering with community projects, small businesses, award-winning agencies, and large brands since 1998, she has lived and worked in the US and internationally as a graphic & UX designer, production artist, print producer, studio director, and certified OOUX strategist.
Now based in the magical, healing desert of Tucson, Arizona, she volunteers as a Community Dialogue Facilitator, holding trauma-informed space for structured conversations that allow many voices and viewpoints to be heard in a brave and respectful environment. In all of her endeavors, Cara seeks to hear and empower people through compassionate listening, meeting herself and others where they are, and co-creating community care. A recovering work hard/play hard design veteran, she begins *most days with a self-care routine of Qi Gong, meditation & journaling before inviting the world in.
