I work as part of a broad global network of friends and colleagues who come together for various projects.

I am part of the Community Resilience Initiative and teach their trauma-informed care curriculum.   Teri Barila and Rick Griffin are inspiring partners helping grow healthy and resilient communities and organizations!

I partner with the Athena Group for projects across western Washington.

I teach with C.O.R.E. – Consultants for Organizational Resilience and Equity to support resilience and equity-informed efforts here at home in King County.

My longest term teaching and learning partners are:

Chris Corrigan:  Chris is truly a master learner and teacher.  Our friend Christina Baldwin once said of Chris, “you eat your teachers and spit them out as story.”   Chris’s Irish heritage is alive in his incredible way of teaching  from story.  His Ojibwa heritage helps us live into the deeper patterns of resilience, community, and ancestral wisdom that always support us in creating the new.  Chris is a “harvestor extraordinaire ”  committed to learning at every level and sharing that bolding through his blog and website.  He embodies the “Art of Hosting” as a true process artist and invites people into their creative brilliance.

Caitlin Frost:  What happens as we step out of our fears and our limiting beliefs?  Who are we and what can we create?  Caitlin is one of the most loving and courageous people I know.  She is comfortable hosting us in our biggest fears, worries, and judgments –   Thus creating a place of transformation that opens wild possibility.  Caitlin is an incredible process host and helps us create teams with deep trust and wisdom at the center.  Her practice of facilitating the work of Byron Katie has become a practice for all of us in our work and life.

Sono Hashisaki:  Sono has been dedicated to working on behalf of the wellbeing of the Puget Sound and the Bioregion for decades.   Her background in landscape design and ecosystem planning has her looking at everything through the eyes of systems, resilience, and the kind of relationships we need to build sustainable partnerships.   Sono has a vision for the Puget Sound and Bioregion that has me captivated and curious for how we build the kind of partnerships needed to  “bringing everything along.”   Sono lives hospitality and community – food, music, friendship, laughter, and wicked conversations!  It’s great to be her friend and companion in many efforts!
