The Transforming Power of Authentic Community

In this 2021 TEDxSeattle talk, K. Killian Noe discusses the power of authentic community, which she defines as being deeply known and deeply loved.

Killian understands that no one gets out of a deep pit on their own. It’s been her life’s work to ensure that others have the tools they need to emerge from the pit of trauma and it’s symptoms—including homelessness and addiction and depression. Her talk explores how community can lead to healing, and how healing is learning to embrace fear instead of love.


Inspiring, Uplifting,

K. Killian Noe
