I'm excited to have a new project  in 2020 which is training others to host Listening Circles wherever you are.

For instructions (written & video) for leading a Listening Circle please consult the excellent work-- over 12 years of promoting empathy-- of Edwin Rutsch at or


Empathy is the glue of society.  It builds everything we cherish: trust, honesty, compassion, and cooperation.  Although hard-wired in our brains, practicing empathic listening, increases our skills.

If you long to deepen personal relationships, prevent mis-communication, connect with those a bit different from you, and increase positive social behavior that sustains us all, practice empathy.

LISTENING CIRCLES support meaningful and constructive dialogue and each person feels heard to their satisfaction.  And, they are fun!  EMAIL me if you want support to do a LISTENING CIRCLE.  

Recent Workshops with Bren

March 9, 2019 I hosted a all day workshop called BUILDING SOLID RELATIONSHIPS at my Brenham home.  Photo of a few of the participants.

ONGO - a 12 week practice of NVC and meditation

In 2019, I hosted 2 sessions!  What a remarkable experience.  Learn about this and you may be inspired to organize your own community to do this spiritual journey together.  Much appreciation to authors of the book:  Jesse Weins and Catherine Cadden.

Bren’s presentation “Keep the Life Flowing” to our seniors group in Sugar Land was very effective and very helpful in learning new ways of building better relationships with people around us. Bren kept us all thinking and participating throughout the presentation which everyone enjoyed thoroughly . She inspired us and provided tools to apply in our daily life activities to connect to each other and identify the true needs of each other. Her message of how a non violent communication can help bring the real peace and love for all will stay with us for a long time.
