Current Activities

In addition to my work with individuals, families, and organizations, I teach courses in mindfulness, NVC, and restorative justice at UC Santa Cruz. I am a  volunteer with BayNVC Safer Communities bringing NVC to inmates at San Quentin State Prison.

Along with CNVC trainer Jean Morrison, I have designed and created NVC games and teaching materials sold all over the world and translated into six languages. See
