“The workshop helped me to really zero in on the issue that is most inspiring for me.” 


I offer “One Small Difference” and “One Small Planet” themed workshops to individuals and groups who want to explore ways to engage in social change and service work with balance and authenticity, and without overwhelm, anxiety and isolation.

In addition to the support of the group, workshops employ tools like reflective writing, mindfulness practices, meditation and inquiry. The emphasis is on taking action during the course of the workshop, encouraging the participants to take small steps as they approach the big issues we confront in the world.  

Workshop Testimonials

“The class helped me so much to gauge where I’m at as a climate engager, how I still struggle and take on too much guilt, and where I can nurture my sources of strength as a budding activist.  I’m so happy my mindfulness can infuse all my work from here on out.”

“I will share what I learned with others.”

“I liked how the facilitator encouraged interaction and sharing and community building.”

“I liked the self reflection pieces. I found it very helpful in forming an intention in how I would like to structure my life in service in order to serve myself as well.”

“I liked feeling that wherever I was starting from was fine because that was where I was needing to be.”
