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.

 "This book brims with useful advice.

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

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.
