Living and Speaking Peace 


As the year 2020 arrives, I am eager to continue spreading the dynamic set of skills that is such huge gift to the world, the practice known as Nonviolent Communcation (NVC).  Please view my two newest flyers and imagine bringing these gifts to your community by hosting a presentation.

March 9, 2019 I hosted a all day workshop called BUILDING SOLID RELATIONSHIPS at my Brenham home.  Below are 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.
