"I want to live in a world where we see each other as belonging to the same family and we hold as sacred the life we share with people, animals, and all living things. In short, I want Beloved Community. If we each open ourselves to inner development and acquire the skills of awareness, humility, empathy and honesty, we will learn to find nonviolent solutions and create a world of peace and justice. I want to contribute to this world with all my gifts and graces."

I share Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is by convening each year a twelve-week, twelve-person online journey of peace, wisdom, and compassion called Ongo 2.0.

And joyously, each Saturday, I host and facilitate the Whole-Hearted Empathy Practice Circle joined by people from around the globe. You are invited! 

“Despite being in my seventh decade of life, I am still offering workshops to teachers, students, couples, and anyone. My mission is to place these life-serving practices before as many hearts and minds as possible.”
