I have a deep-felt gratitude for attending the “Breaking The Silence Now” bullying awareness conference at a high school in Maryland yesterday.

I assisted CNVC-certified trainer, Jane Connor Ph.D, in a short presentation on ‘Transforming Bullying and Building Relationships’ with the power of Compassionate Communication and Restorative Practices.

I was moved to shivers and tears hearing teenagers sharing their personal stories of bullying.

And left re-invogirated in my vision and passion to present deeply transforming methods of communicating and listening with empathy to schools, educators and parents.

Contact me if you have curious in this particular topic as I am preparing new offers and curriculum for parents and teachers trainings.

Stay tuned for other programs shaping up for this Winter and contribute your own desires and wishes in this survey to help me best meet your needs!

Fall GratitudeLet’s Make ‘Gratitude Day’ Every Day!

In this time of giving thanks, we slow down to focus on the people and events that warm our hearts.  Research proves that focusing on a gratitude practice each day improves your overal happiness, optimism and joy, even increases your immune system and more!

Both my children, 5 and 8, have taken on writing gratitude post-it notes every day and put them in a transparent jar, filling them with notes of love and appreciation for the small and big people and things in their lives. It’s been indeed uplifting them (and me!) and has been a joyous addition to our connecting rituals.

Gratitude Practice: Focus and write down each day on 5 things you are grateful for in your last 24 hours.  Do this every day for at least 30 days. See what comes up!

May you all be surrounded with love and care from your family and friends and rejoice in the small and large gifts of life.

In grateful service,
