Virginia Satir, in her lifetime, touched the hearts of millions of people worldwide. She helped us understand the meaning of human connection. She helped us to understand the process of change, the power of understanding and the wisdom of compassion, for others and most importantly for ourselves.

Virginia would have been 100 years old on June 26th, 2016. 


Please help us celebrate her birthday in three ways:
1. Send us a video by recording you or your group expressing your appreciation for how Virginia touched your life. Be sure to include your name and your country. Please keep your video to 60 seconds or less. If English is not your first language, please repeat your message in your own language. 
Steps for sending an appreciation:
1) Upload your video to YouTube, marking it as  unlisted or public
2) Copy your video's YouTube URL
3)  Send the url to our organizer by clicking the Contact Button below (envelope icon)
4) Or write an appreciation and send it to our organizer by clicking the Contact Button below (envelope icon).
We will be posting your videos and written appreciations as updates.

2. Donate to our campaign. We ask you to donate so we can continue furthering Virginia’s teachings.  Some of the ways we are currently doing this are by:
·sponsoring conferences, such as the upcoming one
  honoring Virginia’s 100th birthday, Becoming More Fully Human: The Evolution
·co-sponsoring trainings for continuing education
  credits
·offering online education
·promoting trainings, books, articles and research through the weekly News Flash
·linking people, such as linking a Saudi Arabian author of the Arabic version of Satir’s The New Peoplemaking with a Jordanian professor who found a publisher for him.

3. Share our campaign with your friends and associates on Facebook, Twitter and by email.

Our Campaign will end December 31, 2016. Please contribute now.
This week's video is from a married couple in Beijing, China. Here is the translation of their video:
I'm Fuyang, the wife.
I'm Fu Huaidong, the husband. We come from China, Beijing. We fall in love because we both are foodies. However, after our marriage, our life isn't that happy. On one hand, I'm a romantic lady, on the other hand, he is a typical science geek. We have so many differences, however, when we meet Miranda and Satir Model, we finally know “ we attract each other by our similarities, and we learn from each other by our differences. "
After that, I can understand my husband's sense, and my husband can stand my sensibility.
Here, we really want to say:“ we are appreciating Satir Model!"

Bob Spitzer gives us our appreciation video this week. The video is a little hard to hear due to background noise but Bob is a person well worth hearing. Bob and Virginia Satir shared decades of creative partnership. Bob acquired the publishing house, Science & Behavior Books, releasing many seminal books that influenced millions of mental health professionals. Virginia, Bob, and his wife Becky helped to establish IHLRN (an international association of therapists). Bob died in December 2015. If you would like to know more about his amazing life, read his obituary at: http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/sfgate/obituary.aspx?pid=177197682#sthash.Pmh4IVwQ.dpuf

With gratitude, and love, to Virginia Satir, for Tiyospaye, Process Community, her wonderful hugs, and timely wisdom. Her universal mantra: "peace within, peace between, peace among."

We have had the privilege of teaching 300 students in a class that was in many ways based on Virginia's teachings. This contribution is in their honor and in appreciation for what they taught us.

"LIFE-CHANGING" is my best phrase. and the one I hear the most from others consistently. to describe the benefits of learning about and utilizing the Satir model---both personally and professionally. It is by far the most wholistic modality I have ever heard of or encountered. My life is just one piece of living proof among many. Blessings to each one carrying on your vision, and Happy 100th year of your special energy, wisdom, and compassion, Virginia!
