Listening & Leading From Within ~ Knowing our Story and The Empowerment of Skills


My hope is to support, nurture and inspire greater balance, harmony & peace -
within our individual and communal life.  Deep Listening to our self, others and the natural world around us is vital in these times.

Thank you for your interest in my work.

Listening is the thread that is woven through the different faces of my work.
Mindful listening to self, others and the world around us allows us to create
meaninful connections, build relationships, and build bridges. Mindful talking is also important - how to best convey our own story and to receive the story of others.

"In listening to our own stories and the stories of others, we can create bridges of peace. Listen with your body, mind, heart and soul. Seek to balance these levels in your own life and in the lives of others."
