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.
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.
