Corona Virus – Crisis and Opportunity

We have been in uncharted territory and have needed to make it up as we’ve gone along, with the best information we had available at the time.  Many have likened the feelings arising at this time as being akin to the grief process – shock, denial, bargaining, depression/sadness, acceptance, and eventually, making meaning.  Some of …

So here we are in 2020, the stuff of science fiction fantasy when I was a child!  And yet, 2020 is here and the world is in some disarray.  We can step into fear in response to that disarray, or, we can step into connection, and from there to community. So, an invitation – to …

We Need To Talk About Death

On Thursday, 11th April, 2019 I was privileged, delighted and terrified to give a 6 minute 40 second talk at our local Pechakucha evening.  Pechakucha is Japanese for “chit chat” and was developed by people who were sick and tired of long and often boring Conference addresses.  So, the deal is 20 slides at 20 seconds per slide.  My chosen subject WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT DEATH.
