February 19, 2020

Trusting myself and others is part of my life-long learning. Feeling safe inside myself, at times, requires telling myself that I'm okay and equipped to handle what comes next. For me, self-coaching or soothing myself, has been an on-again, off-again practice for more than twenty years. The need to calm myself started because of panic attacks.

Using Agreements for Conflict Management

August 27, 2013

When twenty strangers met on Whidby Island this past week, it was as if they were representing the world as a whole.  By that I mean, when you get enough people together the fullness of what it means to be human comes along for the ride.  There were those suffering from loss, enamored with new loves, transitioning to a new life-stage, and warriors who were transcending challenging situations.  I was reminded of how we are as different as we are alike.  While these twenty started out as nameless faces, once I heard read more
