My focus in the belly2belly practice is to create a safe and alive space, allowing participants to re-member that they are held, they are whole, they are enough, and they are loved.  The present tense focus often leads us into mystical realms- the silence between the sounds in the room, the moment just before our masks come into form.

I’ve been immersed in the field of education for many years, focusing on helping people improve their teaching and facilitation skills.  To date I’ve presented to over 100,000 people in 40 states in the US and 15 countries.  My best-selling book “Conscious Classroom Management: Unlocking the Secrets of Great Teaching” has sold over a quarter million copies.

Workshops I’ve taught include “Making Friends With the Noises in Our Heads,” “Slowing Down to the Speed of Love,” “Growing in Inner Authority- Cultivating Our Genius,” and “Brain-Compatible Presentation Skills to Inform and Inspire,”

In my work, I show how assuming the best about ourselves and each other can result in true and lasting magic.
