双语 | Bilingual – 友谊与超越：玛丽亚和琳达的旅程 Friendship and Beyond: Maria and Linda’s Journey
With 瑪莉亞‧葛茉利 Maria Gomori and 琳达· 尼科尔 斯 Linda Nicholls
December 18, 2021
It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Maria Gomori on December 10, 2021. Before she passed, Maria was adamant that this talk about Linda’s & her friendship go on, with Maria telling Linda which stories she wanted Linda to tell.
Friendship and Beyond: Maria and Linda’s Journey
“We connect on our sameness and grow from our differentness” – Virginia Satir
Maria Gomori grew up with very few “girlfriends” in her life. And then, over 30 years ago when she was at Haven with Virginia Satir, she met Linda Nicholls. Each came from a very different cultural and educational background and yet over time they developed a close and lasting bond. They worked together in both Canada and China, co-created workshops together (including “Transitions”) and shared many travel adventures, including several European and South American countries, Mexico, New York City, Montreal and Israel. Sharing common values of freedom and life-long learning Maria and Linda continued to discover both the similarities and differences between them that stimulate conversation and inquiry to further enrich their relationship right until the end.
Come join Linda and listen to their stories, which include times they have laughed together, agreed to disagree with each other, loved and supported each other, connecting them through space and time, and co-creating their lasting friendship.
This talk will be by donation (pay what you can). Maria & Linda are donating their time in order to help the Haven during a really difficult fiscal period. Any amount is greatly appreciated by the Haven as things are slow this winter, and we need help to make it through this time.
This online program will be hosted on Zoom, a video conferencing software that is free for participants and easy to use on a variety of devices. You will need to have a device (desktop computer or laptop recommended; tablet or smartphone can work too), reliable internet connection, and sound capabilities (headset recommended; built in or external microphone or speaker systems can work too). You can test your device connection and compatibility in advance here: zoom.us/test. You will be invited to join the call up to 15 minutes early to receive technical support.
We will be having a “real time” translation into Mandarin Chinese for the talk.
If you are unable to join one of the sessions, we encourage you to still register. Recordings of the teaching components of each session will be accessible online for 30 days. Personal sharing in breakout rooms is not recorded and participants audio and video will never be shared without consent.
非常哀慟地我們通知大家：Maria Gomori 已於 2021 年 12 月 10 日去世。在她離世之前，瑪麗亞堅持繼續完成原定有關談論她與琳達間友誼的募款活動，瑪麗亞交待了琳達她想讓琳達講述哪些故事。
瑪莉亞‧葛茉利在她的⽣活中⼏乎没有“女性朋友”。然后，30 多年前，当她和弗吉尼亚萨蒂尔⼀起在海⽂學院，她遇到了琳达· 尼科尔斯。她們来⾃截然不同的⽂化和教育背景，但随着时间的推移，她们建立了密切⽽持久的联系。她们曾在加拿⼤和中国合作，共同创建过⼯作坊（包括 “过渡”這個課程）并分享了许多旅⾏冒险，包括⼏个欧洲和南美国家、墨⻄哥、纽约市、蒙特利尔和以⾊列。她們分享⾃由和终⾝学习的共同价值观。Maria 和 Linda 继续发现她们之间的异同，从⽽激发对话和探究，进⼀步丰富她们的关系。
本次演讲将通过捐赠（尽你所能）的⽅式进⾏。 玛丽亚和琳达奉獻著她们的时间来帮助海⽂學院⽬前正處在⼀个非常困难的财政时期。 Haven 非常感谢任何捐贈的⾦额，因为今年冬天的營運进展缓慢，我们需要帮助才能度过这段时间。
