"In my experience advising Gather Well over the past few years, I have been impressed by the sincerity and thoughtfulness which Naama brings to the challenging enterprise of re-imagining what this organization might be.  Through an extended process of deep reflection, she and her team have managed to preserve the invaluable elements of their lineage with CCM, while also effecting a transformation into a new and vital organization that responds to learnings from the past and is designed to meet the specific challenges of our time.  I believe that there is great potential for this evolving project, and I am grateful to have the opportunity to contribute to its development."
