How did you become involved with OCL? I heard about the class through Barry-Wehmiller and wanted to experience it for myself. Afterwards, I knew the material was going to change my life and it has. I love passing on the knowledge to my friends, family, community and the world.
What is your hope for OCL? My hope for OCL is to be the catalyst for better communication in the world. When we give people tools to improve their lives, we are participating in a more caring world, one conversation at a time. We are creating a listening movement!
How do you most often find yourself using what you learned in CST? I have to be most purposeful with my loved ones, since they know how to push my buttons. I remind myself to be quiet and listen and to listen without an agenda. When I use the material, my life flows with less drama and more productivity and connection.
Three things that make you smile. My kids when we are connecting, having fun, and working together, beautiful scenery (love being outdoors), and reading a good book.
