I give children the benefit of the doubt when I write my books. My stories wend their ways through indigenous cultures where children's innate ability for wisdom is honored and nurtured. I forge unique and intriguing characters who reflect back to young readers their own wonderful qualities which are true to the nature of all humans regardless of age, background, or upbringing.
My books provide children an open door to their inner world where innate knowing awaits them.
My life work encompasses several realms
Writing - My messages help to highlight my readers' unique and personal expression. My style is to weave into my stories clear yet subtle messages about the importance of allowing life’s twists and turns to inspire internal growth and movement.
Publishing - I am working on a project called, Palmo Publishing. It is a publishing house related to the Palmo Center for Peace and Education, a nonprofit whose mission is to educate the heart and mind of all humanity in ways of compassion and inclusion. We aspire to publish multicultural books which focus on World Peace.
Meditation - With over ten years of extensive training in Tibetan Meditation, I received permission from my root teacher to offer beginning, middling, and advanced-beginner classes. Teaching since 2012, my style is light, fun, and direct. I aspire to provide a respectful and safe environment for students to quiet their minds and navigate an authentic and fulfilling path in life.
Professional Services - Relationship Coaching and Conflict Resolution - I offer life coaching as it correlates to relationships for family, work, communities, and couples. My approach allows clients to free themselves from the binds of habitual patterns that lie at the root of conflict. I am certified as a Mediator, and offer a model for self-reliant and empowered engagement. For in-person appointments, my office is in Eugene, OR. I am also available for long distance appointments via telecommunications. To make an appointment with me, please go to my Contact page.
