Parenting with courage, humility and love.

Designing Learning Environments that illuminate humanity.

Building Leadership & Community Circles that nurtures 

growth, supports change, inspires solutions, transforms lives.




We schedule workshops open to everyone, as well as design workshops that respond to the interests and needs of organizations and communities. 

An example of our Workshop Themes:

  • Designing Learning Environments that illuminate humanity and create a foundation for health and success. How do we define "Learning Environment"? We are persuaded that every "environment" provides a space for learning" - this includes our home, work, places of worship, community, and school environments.

  • What's Your Story? An invitation to knowing your organization and/or community by understanding who is in the room, what is each individual's lived experience, and how together you support your mission and vision, creating a more honest, open, and caring environment that will support successful outcomes and well-being. 

  • Engaging our Children with courage, humility, humor and love. (aka - CH2L) Prosocial Practices for parents, guardians, child care providers, and educators.

Professional Development Coaching: 

  • We focus on Human Awareness Coaching, building skills necessary for living in alignment with one's values - integrating mindfulness practice into the ways we communicate, think, and act. 

  • We believe that at the core of our potential and an organization's potential is relationship. The relationship we have with ourselves and others'. If our core relationships are not positive and healthy, we cannot expect to sustain positive outcomes. 

  • Relationship is foundational to the Learning Environments we establish for ourselves and others. 

Leadership, Dialogue, and Community Circle Facilitation:

  • New Initiative: Delawareans For Benevolent Community: For those living in and leading Delaware. Open to ALL who believe that we can be a state rooted in compassion, nurtured by diversity and shared humanity, educated by history and lived-experiences - A state that believes that by listening to each other and working together we can resolve the issues that divide us, and solve the problems of today and tomorrow that most concern us. Open to ALL who believe that together we have the heart, imagination, and talent to create a healthier future for all of our communities.
