Greetings from Bangkok where the country has been celebrating the coronation HM King Maha Variralongkorn Bodindradebayavarungkun. We wish him well with the hope that the entire country benefits during his reign.

We appreciate our friend Jill Jameson’s insightful and heartfelt article about peacebuilding efforts in Myanmar despite rising military control. The training Jill has facilitated over many years is based on building trust and acceptance across differences through sharing stories in a supportive environment and by using deep listening skills. This process is essential for opening hearts and makes transformation possible at many levels. The article describes her interactions during recent training describing the complexity of issues faced by various organisations and individuals from Myanmar’s diverse ethnic groups, states, and social and economic sectors.
