My good friend Dorsey Cartwright and her colleague Wendy Byrd offer a heart-healing opportunity for parents and their adult children, the

"Generations Dialogue Workshop"

in Austin, Texas.  Their transformative work is touching families with healing and new depths of connection.  For the next workshop, click here.

Miniatures and sand open our wordless inner worlds into visible form. For 20 years, we have been privileged to see healing unfold as fingers work the sand and unexpected scenes appear.


If this work draws you, here are some resources for imagining the kinds of images you will need and then finding them - from good quality/less expense to works of art/more expense. To the right is a sample of images from my collection. And just below are the magical works of three artists creating unique images for healing.

Exploring Touch Drawing for Healing and Deep Inner Connection
with Shemaya Blauer

The flyer for the current class beginning in January is here.

My dear friends and colleagues, Danette Gillespie-Otto and Marc Otto, offer  unique IPNB-rich workshops for People of Color both here in Portland and in other cities as well. Their work addresses racism with the clarity and compassion born of personal experience and deep study of relational neuroscience. Marc also offers workshops regarding racism for white humans. You can find their work on their websites - Danette and Marc.
