Medford, Oregon, USA

After 35 years in transformation-based training, coaching and facilitation and writing my 2017 book, The Impossible Conversation: Choosing Reconnection and Resilience at the End of Business as Usual, I was called to synthesize those elements into a single body of work. The purpose of this work is to provide support and resources to people brave enough to face our predicament-laden world.

What I discovered in my own psychospiritual and energetics-based practices was that the source of our human-caused collapse of Earth and Human Systems, was our disconnection from all of the primary sources of meaning in human life: Deeper Self, Other People, Earth and Soul.

At the center of my work is the opportunity for each person to choose and craft their own path to reconnection with those ‘sources of meaning.’ It is my distinct privilege to work with and support people who are courageously engaged in the most difficult and important conversation in human history.

In my experience, whether a person is brand new to this extraordinary conversation – or been engaged in it for years – there is  a conversion of despair, fear and resignation for greater: awareness, aliveness and presence when we actively reconnect with these primary sources of meaning, with the Web of Life itself.

I have created a hybrid combination of online, live and on-demand learning / training series and deeply relationship and presence-based in-person events – to accommodate the needs of a diverse and widely distributed participant group.
