Jacobsen has led compassionate listening workshops across the community, in churches and synagogues, universities, the State Correctional Institute at Graterford, and for three years in Rwanda. After a workshop at Graterford one participant said, “By the end of the first session, I had a new family. A bond of trust was built in that space that can only be experienced; not explained. I looked around the room as eyes widened during those ‘ah-ha’ moments.”
