During my graduate study in conflict resolution, one of the first “rules” I learned as a mediator was to always bring muffins. I thought it odd at the time, but the importance of food in supporting communication opportunities cannot be overemphasized. In so many cultures, communication, learning, and peacebuilding happen over food. Many cultures also use fasting as a way to appreciate and recognize how the basic human needs of food and water have such impact on our lives. I post this here, and on my Facebook page, for students and practitioners to read and contemplate. So many of us work in contexts of deprivation, yet judge others without appreciating the stress we might all be under facing the same deprivation.
