Current Projects: 

In addition to 1-on-1 Energy Healing, I facilitate transformative workshops to cultivate creativity, mindfulness and spiritual embodiment for social change activists. I also support groups working towards shared purposes to deepen and expand their visions.

Conflict Transformation Trainings

I offer skill-building training series for organizations and groups utilizing the Turning Towards Each Other Conflict Workbook Curriculum which takes an embodied, structural power & equity-informed approach to conflict transformation. Workshops series topics include "Understanding your Personal Conflict Habits & Archetypes," "Navigating Courageous Conversations," and "Dominant Culture Patterns & Conflict."

Mindfulness Meditation Instruction

I offer instruction in trauma-informed Mindfulness meditation, a secularized practice that comes out of the Theravada Buddhist lineage. My mentoring teachers are Mushim Patricia Ikeda (East Bay Meditation Center) and Will Kabat Zinn. 

Writings & Audio

Turning Towards Each Other is a workbook on conflict for people working to change the world together that I co-authored with Jovida Ross. The booklet gathers and adapts tools we have used to help us navigate conflict while moving towards transformative change in groups. We wrote Turning Towards Each Other because we needed these tools ourselves and because we believe deeply in people’s transformative capacity to access our wholeness and create new worlds based in love.
