Support for dialogue, conflict, and cooperative governance
"Any war ends with an agreement." Volodymyr Zelenskyy, President of Ukraine
Who I am
I work with individuals and groups to facilitate learning, creative conflict engagement, and collaborative decision making. I’m passionate about supporting people to create a just world through dialogue and meaningful action.
I live and practice permaculture and social transformation in Missouri, U.S., in a farming community I cofounded in 2005.
I also teach Junior High English full-time during the school year.
What I love to do
Three ways I enjoy contributing toward a better world
Facilitating retreats, tricky meetings, and strategic planning sessions; supporting your group to build a culture of consensus; and training facilitators to reach the next level of skill, presence, and effectiveness
Conflict System Design
Guiding and accompanying your family, community, or organization to design a satisfying Restorative System for having conflict, repairing harm, and restoring connection
Leading workshops on creating resilient communities for humans and the natural world; Permaculture design; ecovillage design; and land-based learning programs for adults and youth
What they say about me
How can I support you?
We can design together a unique approach to getting your needs met. I offer workshops, training, consultation, and coaching, all with an aim to support you or your group through changes, challenges, hard conversations, and other risky opportunities.
Due to my rigorous teaching schedule, I am available only in the months of June and July.
