Knowledge-Shaping Solutions was created to promote peacebuilding, collective wellness, and more purposeful and satisfying living through transformational learning that drives positive social change. Registered in 2010 in metro Washington, DC's Old Town Alexandria, Knowledge-Shaping Solutions is a US federal government SAM-compliant woman owned small business.
We work with leaders across sectors and disciplines, promoting contemplative pedagogies, mindful leadership, compassionate care, and ethical practices impacting community wellness and positive mental health. We serve our mission by promoting the practice and teaching of "compassionate cooperation", an intervention based on the paradigm for thought and expression that produces connection, detailed in D'Amico (2014) and endorsed by His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
Connection, not better communication, causes human flourishing, and is instrumental to feeling satisfied and happy with people and situations at home, work, in our larger communities, and the world. It is the basis for healthy systems, affects the quality and authenticity of interpersonal and intergroup relationships, and impacts motivation, productivity, effectiveness, collaboration, and morale.
