I research and write about radical empathy for people interested in a creative, transformational way of life.

Through my writing, speaking, and collaborations in organizational development with a variety of leaders, I offer practical, effective guidance for individuals and communities who want people to listen and talk to each other with kindness.

In my free ebook, Songs of Earth and Sky: a 3-day writing retreat, I share integrative practices to nurture creativity and transformation.


My free monthly newsletter, A Lyrical Life, focuses on a creative, transformational way of life, with practices that foster self-compassion and develop empathy.


To honor the transformational power of poetry, and to elevate the important work poets do, I founded Lyricality. With many collaborators, I help Minnesota poets & writers, artists, and organizations connect across diverse demographics to foster radical empathy.
