Authentic Connection: Who Do You Think You Are, and What Did You Mean by That? – Engaging Conversations that Heal
This program emerged from the 16-part series of essays that appear on this site (posted February-May, 2019), and addresses what might be called the lost art of civil conversation – how we might disagree (and agree) without the insult, sweeping generalizations and lack of respect that currently characterize much of our communication.
Conscious Living and Dying: Laughing Amid Our Grave Concerns
Looking honestly at our own inevitable dying and death (this is not about insurance, wills, trusts and estate planning).
Who Do You Think You Are, and What (in the World) Are You Doing?
An integral exploration of identity—who you think you are, and perspective—how you view the world. This program can also be titled, The Truth, the Whole Truth, and Nothing but the Truth—As Far as I Can Tell.

Poetry From the Heart
A fear-releasing, fun, and guaranteed-you-can-do-it introduction to writing poems.
