Too many well-meaning presentations fall flat. A passionate message – live, video, audio, written – engages by telling stories that make each listener feel something. Behavior doesn’t change… inspiration doesn’t grow… unless communication is genuine (not glib), personalized (not generic), vulnerable (not packaged).

She also has a particular interest in writing history.

She gave a 40-minute talk at Lake Harriet Spiritual Center about “Revealing the Real You: Like An Onion,” in which she discussed aspects of her career as storyteller, mixed with epigenetics, Darwin and Spinoza. Here is a snippet from the beginning of that conversation.
This is her 30-minute interview with the owner of Freethinking Forum about her combined interests in consciousness and sustainability.
