Experience facilitating other events & workshops
What year did you begin facilitating the Work That Reconnects?
I have been facilitating groups for twenty five years starting with teaching Nonviolent Civil Disobedience in the antinuclear movement. I am a skilled community organizer and am great at bringing diverse groups and interest together. I bring knowledge of Deep Ecology from the perspective of a scientist (M.S. Forestry) as well as someone who believes the earth is alive, sentient and sacred. I am a great teacher and liaison to the natural world. I am a Spiritual Director and companion people along a spiritual path so they can find how spirit is moving through their life.
