These resources are highly recommended for inspiration and development as you continue on a life path based in Joy:

Powerful Non-Defensive Communication: (PNDC) — created by Sharon Strand Ellison is an extraordinarily brilliant new model for communication that demonstrates how we have long used the rules of war as the basis for conversation when we feel defensive and want to protect ourselves—whether at home, at work or in our communities. Providing a revolutionary and disarming new paradigm that gives the tools we need to achieve our goals without engaging in power struggle, you can learn practical skills to 

• Ask disarming questions that get to the heart of an issue quickly

• Give honest feedback without being judgmental

• Express your own ideas, feelings and beliefs with clarity

• Create boundaries that enhance respect and reciprocity

I believe that when we drop defensiveness and power struggle from all of our relationships, we tap into an unlimited well-spring of Joy. For more information, visit

Living Arts Playback Theatre — Moments of our lives can be touchstones, full of power and significance. Playback Theatre transforms personal stories told by audience members into theatre pieces using movement, ritual, music, and spoken improvisation. Playback Theatre works with children and youth in schools, violent prisoners, and also brings together the descendants of Holocaust survivors with those of Germans Nazi supporters in a workshop and performance called "Acts of Reconciliation." To witness any of their performances is memorable and powerful.
