The importance of connecting with others:

Baltimore Dialogues Part I: Forgiveness & Love to Heal the City

Terry Wiilliams tells a very rare story of forgiveness, in a city where revenge and retaliation are driving so much of the murder. Terry and other Ex-Offenders are doing positive things across the city and helping to provide a new narrative -- with stories of forgiveness and healing.

Humans of New York: The Series

NY Stories on forgiveness. Its so nice to see people opening up and showing their true, vulnerable, flawed sides. We are all flawed and have all endured hardship and pain. A willingness to be vulnerable in front of a large audience is so powerful, necessary and life changing.

New episode of Humans of New York: The Series, featuring intimate and surprising conversations with strangers on the streets of New York City. This week's theme is 'Forgiveness'.


We commend and thank Van Jones and other creators of "The Redemption Project" for this very important work. Obviously there are similarities with their work and ours. Our "Prison Dialogues" series will be much shorter episodes and ours will focus more on the actual dialogues themselves -- the direct interpersonal engagement. #RedemptionProject Van Jones


For too many years our media and entertainment industry has given us a narrative of violence and division. Here is another beautiful story of #Forgiveness #Healling & #UnderstandingThroughDialogue It's time for a #NewNarrative

TEDx: "What the internet was actually intended for" by Panacea Founder

"In some ways, our recent technology helps bring us together. But in many ways, it disconnects and divides us. The internet has helped disrupt and solve many problems in our world. But its yet to disrupt, what I believe is the worlds biggest problem -- the way that we interact with, and treat each other. Imagine if we could disrupt the violence. Imagine if we could disrupt the barriers between us....

The importance of #UnderstandingThroughDialogue:
At the peak of the cold war, Kennedy and Kruschev were listening to their advisors and the instigators of war throughout their countries and almost launched nuclear bombs at each other. It wasn't until they actually sat down and had a direct dialogue that they were able to truly understand each other and avoid a nuclear war.

Let's drown out the noise and opinions of the crowds. Let's to stop guessing and prejudging. The only way to truly understand the perspectives, motives, and feelings of other people is through direct dialogues with them, where we can ask them the exact questions we need to ask.


To those new to our community, please check out our first big story from 2016. John McGraw and Rakeem Jones fought at a Trump Rally. Most of America knew about the fight but few people know about the dialogue we facilitated.

While the news media inflamed the conflict, we brought them together for healing and #UnderstandingThroughDialogue. Help us create more stories of dialogue and healing for the world. Rakeem & John thank you! "You and me, can help heal this country!" -- John McGraw

Please share and ask you friends to join. Thank you!

The news media and political apparatus drove these 2 men against each other, making them look like animals, and inflaming the situation. Panacea brought these 2 men together for a civilized/constructive dialogue. The power of face-to-face discussion.

On the importance of dialogue:
"Deep listening helps us to recognize the existence of wrong perceptions in the other person and wrong perceptions in us. The other person has wrong perceptions about himself and about us. And we have wrong perceptions about ourselves and the other person. And that is the foundation for violence and conflict and war. In violent conflicts, both sides are motivated by fear, by anger, and by wrong perception. But wrong perceptions cannot be removed by guns and bombs. They should be removed by deep listening, compassionate listening, and loving space."


On the importance of dialogue:
"Deep listening is the kind of listening that can help relieve the suffering of another person. You can call it compassionate listening. You listen with only one purpose: to help him or her to empty his heart. Even if he says things that are full of wrong perceptions, full of bitterness, you are still capable of continuing to listen with compassion. Because you know that listening like that, you give that person a chance to suffer less. If you want to help him to correct his perception, you wait for another time. For now, you don’t interrupt. You don’t argue. If you do, he loses his chance. You just listen with compassion and help him to suffer less. One hour like that can bring transformation and healing."

Our Story

Humanizing the dehumanized and bringing people together for better understanding through dialogue.

The world has been calling for a better media system. Let's leverage the awesome power of our media to promote empathy, problem solving through dialog, civility, open-mindedness, self ownership, humility and the pursuit of truth. We're here to take the power away from media gatekeepers and 3rd parties and give it back to the people!

We're also promoting transparency and accountability by harnessing the power of digital cameras around the world. Capturing these stories is important, but let’s not crucify the actors. Let’s reject our tendency to prejudge and show the need to understand perspectives. We welcome them to attend Panacea Dialogues.
