I am an artist and teacher who has traveled widely and speaks several languages. Among all those languages, it is the non-verbal language of art making that I find particularly valuable in healing misunderstanding.
My mission is to start with myself, to learn how to communicate non-violently; in particular, to learn how not to allow verbal bullying, and to be able to use non-violent self-talk. I want healing, not hurting, to be the calling to which I respond.
To learn, and help others learn, to ameliorate discord in hardened family- and interpersonal relationships by practicing the principles of non-violent communication. Once such primary relationships are freed from corrosive behaviors, I believe each healed person will have the tools with which to extend non-violent communication to secondary relationships, and ultimately to those seen as not-me.
