Anne has offered workshops, retreats and classes in a variety of settings over the years. Her background in the health care field combined with her training in deep listening, group dynamics and holding sacred space offers an opportunity to create a unique experience for your team. Workshops can be in half-day, full-day or extended over several days depending on your needs. Anne understands that working with team members around tender subjects, such as grief and loss, conflict and sharing of personal feelings, can be risky. She emphasizes creating a space that is safe to share, or not share, and is free of judgment.

Anne’s workshops and retreats utilize creative ways to engage both as a group and with the inner self. Methods include the use of her 22’ modified Chartres Labyrinth (canvas), reflective writing, visual art or other reflective means. Workshops may be done in collaboration with other gifted facilitators if that meets your organization’s needs.

Her own curious heart and mind keep her engaged in the fields of end-of-life care, palliative medicine, grief and loss, aging in general, veterans’ health, caregiver concerns, Narrative Medicine and life transitions. She looks forward to working with you.

“My philosophy in any group setting is to provide a space for participants to hear their own voice, freedom to share (or not share) their discoveries, and the gift of time to reflect on their journey. The works of Parker Palmer, Marshall Rosenberg, Rachel Naomi Remen, and John Fox are just four influences on why I value the need to create safe, sacred space in group settings. I believe we have much to offer each other when we listen intentionally and gently.
